Australian Derby 2018 winner - Levendi

2018 Australian Derby race recap

The 2018 Australian Derby was one of the most thrilling finishes in the history of the Randwick 2400m feature.

Ace High was well-supported by punters after winning the Victorian Derby in the spring and he looked home halfway down the straight, but fellow Victorian Levendi was making big strides and the two talented stars went hammer and tong over the concluding stages.

It was Levendi which got the upper hand right on the line but connections of Ace High were not happy with some interference close to the line. The protest was later dismissed and Levendi would be crowned the Australian Derby winner.

Both runners spaced the rest of the field with the Chris Waller-trained Tangled finishing into third some six lengths behind Ace High.
