Kiwi 3YO Derby Bound

Wednesday, 11th October 2017

Co-trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman are set to add to their Melbourne spring carnival string with lightly raced Victoria Derby hopeful Vin De Dance, reports NZ Racing Desk. The high-profile New Zealand stable already has Group One winners Bonneval, Jon Snow and Lizzie L'Amour in Melbourne along with three-year-old Weather With You who is also on a Derby path. Vin De Dance races in the colours of OTI Racing and won a 1200m maiden on debut last month in New Zealand on heavy ground before finishing second in Benchmark 65 races over 1400m and 1600m at Te Rapa. "Vin De Dance heads over on Wednesday," Forsman said. "He's a Derby candidate. He's a lightly tried son of Roc De Cambes that is owned by OTI. They want to have a crack at a Derby." Forsman added: "He's run three very good races and if he can stay he'll be competitive." The $1.5 million Gr1 Victoria Derby (2500m) will be run at Flemington on 4 November.
