Will Alcopop Triumph Or Fizzle In 2012 Mackinnon Stakes?

Will Alcopop Triumph Or Fizzle In 2012 Mackinnon Stakes?

Alcopop will be out to win his first race of 2012 when he runs in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakesat Flemington Racecourse tomorrow.


Alcopop is in career best form going into the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington Racecourse.

The eight-year-old looked the winner down the final straight in the $2.5 million Caulfield Cup last start before being taken over in the final stages by classy galloper Dunaden.

With that run, Alcopop proved that his age is no barrier and that he is in career best form going into the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes.

His biggest obstacle to winning the 2012 Mackinnon Stakes appears to be Ocean Park, who is on track to remain unbeaten this spring after his Cox Plate victory last start.
