2014 Brisbane Horse Racing: Queensland Derby
June 04, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Brisbane Racing Club will host the Queensland Derby at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane, Australia. The Queensland Derby is a Group 1 thoroughbred race for three-year old with set weights and run over a distance of 2400 meters.

A total prize money of A$500,000 will be given away in the race. The winner will receive A$320,000 while 2nd place gets A$100,000 and third place A$50,000.

The race will feature Grand Prix Stakes' winner Vilanova and Rough Habit Plate's winner Amexed. Troy Corstens' trained Pinstripe Lane and Tony Pike's trained Rock Diva will also run in the race.

The horse race handicappers have installed Vilanova and Pinstripe Lane as co-favorites to win the Queensland Derby. A dead heat may be a long shot as only one of the two will win the race.
