Six fillies have won the Derby in all of its history since 1780. Of these, three were during the 20th century.

1801 Eleanor
1857 Blink Bonny
1882 Shotover

1908 Signorinetta
1912 Tagalie
1916 Fifinella

PS have you heard of Google? Wink

Yes contrex I have and do use google. I wasn't sure which were fillies - I found Eleanor Signorinetta and fifinella as these are female names. Thanks for filling in the gaps.

Sorry for my snide comment.

I found this page useful

http://www.sportingchronicle.com/epsomderby.html

It has a table with the following columns

Year Name Statistics Sire - Dam

1780 Diomed ch. c. 1777 Florizel - Sister to Juno

...

1801 Eleanor b. f. 1798 Whiskey - Young Giantess

...

In the 3rd, "statistics" column, I am not sure what "b." and "br." mean, but "c." and "f." clearly mean "colt" and "filly".
