The race day will pay tribute to the late and great Darby McCarthy who is recognised as one of the greatest ever Indigenous jockeys, winning Group 1 Races like the AJC Derby and Epsom Handicap as well as saluting in the Stradbroke Handicap on three occasions.
Darby was a trailblazer for Indigenous Jockeys, riding more than 1000 race winners in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
Racing was Darby’s beloved sport and has long been a voice for his people, even setting up an apprentice school for Indigenous youths who wanted to become involved in the racing industry.
