BMW Hong Kong Derby

The BMW Hong Kong Derby is the ultimate prize in the three-race Four-Year-Old Classic Series.

Exclusive to four-year-olds, the Derby's allure lies in the fact that contenders have a single shot at glory, making victory in the race a coveted prize.

Run over 2000 metres, the Derby is also the proving ground for many of Hong Kong's future heroes. Among the roll call of winners, Ambitious Dragon, Designs On Rome, Werther and Rapper Dragon were all named Horse of the Year in the same season.

Trainer John Moore has won the Derby a record six times, including three times in the past four years.
