The Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial is a race known for producing many greats including the famous Galileo. The race was won last year by the Aidan O'Brien trained Cormorant for jockey Padraig Beggy and winning Owners, Coolmore Stud. Cormorant followed in the footsteps of the spectacular Galileo, High Chaparral, Yeats and Fame and Glory in winning the race as he beat stablemate Russian Emperor by half a length.
The Coolmore trained Aidan O'Brien has a rich history in producing many winners in this race with a record of twelve victories. More recently, he has won this race with Cormorant and Broome.
The Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial can serve as a trial for the English Epsom Derby. The last horse to win both races was High Chaparral in 2002. The last winner to achieve victory in the Irish Derby was Fame and Glory in 2009.
