The Winter Derby is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to Thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Lingfield Park over a distance of 1 mile and 2 furlongs (2,012 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in March.
The event was established in 1998, and it was given Listed status the following year. It was promoted to Group 3 level in 2006, and it is now Britain's first "Group" race of the year.
The Winter Derby is run on a Polytrack surface, and it is currently one of three non-turf Group 3 events in Britain, along with the September Stakes and the Sirenia Stakes. The country's first all-weather race at this level was the Silver Trophy Stakes, which was temporarily switched to Lingfield's synthetic track in July 2005.
