The Thorn Park gelding won the race by a nose ahead of Streama, who finished second, and Rain Affair, who placed in third.
Veyron has now won 15 of his 29 race starts and has earned more than $12 million in prize money during his horse racing career.
The eight-year-old was paying big odds of $21 to win the 2013 Warwick Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.
Veyron will go on to compete in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse on September 7, 2013.
He will then be aimed at the Group 1 George Main Stakes at Royal Randwick on September 21, before a possible start in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap.
“The Chelmsford and the George Main (are our aims) and I will nominated for the Epsom (Handicap) but it defends what weight he gets,” confirmed trainer Linda Laing.
Veyron was ridden by jockey Christian Reith in today’s 2013 Warwick Stakes.
“He’s a good horse on his day,” Reith said.
“He was a little bit out of his comfort zone but he’s a tough seasoned horse and they can continue on at that pace.”
