2014 Emirates Stakes Day Scratchings &Track Report

The 2014 Melbourne Cup Carnival is set to finish with a bang this afternoon with nine interesting races to take place on 2014 Emirates Stakes Day.

The Flemington track has played perfectly throughout the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival and track manager Mick Goodie looks to have prepared another outstanding surface that will give every horse the opportunity to win from anywhere on the track.

Despite the excellent conditions, there has still been a large number of scratchings from a variety of different races on the Flemington card, but the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) have not been affected by scratchings.

The final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival means that it is the final day you have the chance to turn $3 into $3 million with the Ladbrokes.com.au MegaPick.

The 2014 Emirates Stakes is the feature race at Flemington this afternoon, but the 2014 Darley Classic is the race that has dominated headlines in the lead-up to this afternoon’s meeting.

Group 1 winners Lankan Rupee, Buffering, Moment Of Change, Rebel Dane, Famous Seamus, Driefontein, Platelet and Temple Of Boom will take on up and coming sprinters Terravista and Chautauqua for the title of the leading sprinter in Australia, while Europe’s leading sprinter Slade Power will have the chance to stamp himself as the best sprinter in the world.

The Emirates Stakes has not drawn the strongest field in its history, but is a very interesting betting race with Contributer ($5) a narrow favourite from Hooked ($7), Lucky Hussler ($7.50) and Bull Point ($7.50).
