2025 Winter Derby Trends

First run in 1998, the Winter Derby is now staged at Southwell racecourse and run on their All Weather track, having been switched from Southwell. The 1m3f contest is also now a Group 3 race after being upgraded from Listed class back in 2006.

In recent years, a 4 year-old has won the race 8 times in the last 16 runnings, while it could pay to concentrate on horses aged 6 or younger as this age group has been responsible for 18 of the last 22 winners – last year the Charlie Appleby runner Military Order won the prize.

Here at GEEGEEZ we look back at the recent winners and gives you all the key stats to take in the 2025 renewal – this year run on Saturday 22nd February 2024.
