The Canadian Derby TicketsThe Canadian Derby has now been held for almost a century. The 2019 Derby marked 90 years of this iconic event. The event features some of the best thoroughbred racing in Western Canada. Alberta's love of horse racing actually pre-dates the founding of the province in 1905, as horse racing was being organized in the area as early as the 1880s. The first Canadian Derby was held in 1930. Some of Alberta's die-hard horse racing fans have been following the evolution of the derby from the 1960s to the present. The Canadian Derby has hosted some great thoroughbreds over the decades including No Hesitation, Scotman and Exclusive Canadian. The record time for the Canadian Derby in the modern era (post-1976) is 2:01:52. Since 1996, this race, like all races in the province, has been governed by Horse Racing Alberta. This organization has helped to revitalize horse racing throughout the province. StubHub is your source for Canadian Derby tickets.
