The start of the 2009 Hong Kong Derby. See also: Derby (disambiguation) A derby (pronounced /ˈdɑːbɪ/ dah-bee in most of the English-speaking world and /ˈdɜrbɪ/ dur-bee in North American English) is a type of horse race, named after the Derby Stakes, still run at Epsom Downs Racecourse in England.[1] That was in turn named for Edward Smith-Stanley, 12th Earl of Derby, who inaugurated the race in 1780.[2] The best-known example in the United States is the Kentucky Derby.[3][4] Traditionally, the term "derby" is used strictly to refer to races restricted to three-year-olds,[citation needed] as the English and U.S. Triple Crown races all are. The most notable exceptions to this rule are the Hong Kong Derby and Singapore Derby, restricted to four-year-old Thoroughbreds, and the Canadian Pacing Derby, an annual harness race for "aged pacers" (Standardbreds) four years old and up.[citation needed] Name Place Distance Restrictions First race Day Notes American Derby Arlington Park, Arlington Heights, Illinois, USA[t 1] 1 3/16 miles[t 2] 1884[5] Australian Derby (also known as AJC Derby) Randwick Racecourse, Sydney 2,400 metres 3 yr olds 1861 Late March or early April Bangalore Derby[6] 2,400 metres 4 yr olds & up Epsom Derby (also known as The Derby, Derby Stakes and the English Derby) Epsom Downs Racecourse, England 1 mile, 4 furlongs and 10 yards 3 yr olds 1780 1st Saturday in June[t 3] French Derby (more often known as Prix du Jockey Club) Chantilly Racecourse 2,100 metres (about 1 mile and 2½ furlongs) 3 yr olds 1836 Early June German Derby Horner Rennbahn, Hamburg 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles) 1869 Early July Hong Kong Derby Italian Derby (Derby Italiano) 1884 Indian Derby Kolkata Racecourse, Kolkata metres Irish Derby The Curragh, County Kildare, Ireland 1½ miles 3 yr olds 1866 Last Sunday in June[t 4] Kentucky Derby Churchill Downs, Louisville, Kentucky, USA 1¼ miles 3 yr olds 1875 1st Saturday in May New Zealand Derby Ellerslie Racecourse, Auckland 2,400 metres (12 furlongs) 3yr olds 1860 1st Saturday in March The richest Derby in the Southern Hemisphere Queensland Derby Singapore Derby Victoria Derby WATC Derby Footnotes: ^ Location has varied ^ Distance has varied ^ Before 1995, 1st Wednesday in June ^ Current race date.
