Penfolds Victoria Derby Day 2021

Watch the 2021 Penfolds Victoria Derby Day live and free on 10 and 10 play from 11am AEDT on Saturday 30 October.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival will kick off on Saturday 30 October 2021 with the famous Penfolds Victoria Derby Day.

Prestige, glamour and style take centre stage on the first big race day of Carnival 2021. Now, there’s no reason to stop us all from revelling in the spirit of Cup Week, as we join together to have the time of our lives.

Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of spring racing, this is a must-see event for racing fans with four exceptional Group 1 races – the $2 million Kennedy Cantala, $1.5 million Coolmore Stud Stakes, $1 million TAB Empire Rose Stakes and the feature race the $2 million Penfolds Victoria Derby.

Fashion meets tradition as the day’s classic black-and-white themes can help set the style for your race-day-at-home party, or inspire those heading out to celebrate with friends.

The event will be available to watch live and free on 10 and 10 play from 12pm AEDT.

This is thoroughbred racing at its very best.
