AAMI Victoria Derby Day Shines

 

 

A crowd of 90,136 enjoyed sparkling sunshine to see Prized Icon win the 2016 AAMI Victoria Derby at famous Flemington on Saturday.

 

James Cummings became the fourth trainer of the Cummings dynasty to win the AAMI Victoria Derby, as the colt ridden by Glyn Schofield took out the $1.5 million dollar race by two and a half lengths, over Sacred Elixir and Inference.

 

Cummings joins his great grandfather Jim, grandfather Bart, and father Anthony in claiming Australia’s premier staying classic for three year olds.

 

Earlier, the Charlie Appleby-trained Oceanographer clinched his place in Tuesday’s Emirates Melbourne Cup by winning the Group 3 Lexus Stakes.
