THEY have been a main­stay of Aus­tralian rac­ing and breed­ing for decades but have never won a Derby in this coun­try.

That can all change at Flem­ing­ton to­mor­row when the Godol­phin team sad­dles up Ara­mayo in the Group 1 AAMI Vic­to­ria Derby (2500m).

The Royal Blue silks se­cured their first ever clas­sic vic­tory with Masar in this year’s Ep­som Derby in Eng­land.

Trainer James Cum­mings has al­ready tasted suc­cess in the Vic­to­ria Derby with Prized Icon in 2016.

He is the fourth gen­er­a­tion of the Cum­mings fam­ily to win the clas­sic, join­ing his great-grand­fa­ther Jim, grand­fa­ther Bart and fa­ther An­thony.
