Winter Derby Trends

First run in 1998, the Winter Derby is staged at Lingfield racecourse and run on their All Weather track. The 1m2f contest in 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 6 times in the last 13 runnings, while it could pay to concentrate on horses aged 6 or younger as this age group has been responsible for 16 of the last 19 winners – last year in 2021, it was another win for trainer John Gosden – his third win in a row - when the Godolphin-owned Forest Of Dean took the honours.

Here at GEEGEEZ we look back at the recent winners and gives you all the key stats to take in the 2022 renewal – this year run on Saturday 26th February 2022.
