The $2 million Gr.1 VRC Derby, one of the oldest and most respected races in the country, a supreme test of three-year-old class… and our boy Southern Moon was right there in the thick of things!

At just his sixth start finishing a gallant second to Warning in what looks to be a high class running of the time honoured Classic, Southern Moon was so game to the line, picking up a lovely $360,000 for his proud connections including his very happy breeder Michael Hirst… congratulations all-round!
