Murwillumbah trainer Matthew Dunn is looking...
The final day of the 2017 Melbourne Cup Carnival is here and the 2017 Emirates Stakes Day results will be updated all afternoon at races. com.au.
Emirates Stakes Day may be one of the most underrated cards during the Spring Racing Carnival and we are set for two outstanding Group 1 events at Flemington this afternoon.
The title of the best sprinter in Australia will be on the line again in the Darley Classic and The Everest winner Redzel has the chance to extend his outstanding winning streak.
He will not have his own way against a strong field that includes a host of Group 1 winners like Chautauqua, Vega Magic, Impending, Malaguerra and Terravista.
The Emirates Stakes is the other Group 1 event on the card and it is also a very competitive affair.
Folkswood ($5) is currently a narrow favourite in the betting market with Ladbrokes.com.au, but there is not a great deal between him and Gingernuts ($5.50), Gailo Chop ($7.50), Cliff’s Edge ($7.50), Happy Clapper ($8) and Tosen Stardom ($9).
Every race on the 2017 Emirates Stakes Day card is absolutely packed full of quality and there is plenty of value to be found on every single race on the card.
You can stay up to date with every race on Emirates Stakes Day with races.com.au and don’t forget to sign-up and deposit with Ladbrokes.com.au!

Race 2 (12:50pm) –$120,000 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Plate Results
Oncidium Ruler wore down Knowable in the final stages to win the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Plate at Flemington this afternoon.
There was plenty of speed in the early stages of the race and it turned into a war of attrition down the famous Flemington straight.
Knowable hit the front at the 400 metre mark, but he was always going to struggle to run out the trip and Oncidium Ruler was able to finish over the top of him in the shadows of the post.

Vengeur Masque looked like a sitting duck when Grey Lion cruised to his outside, but Vengeur Masque simply kept on fighting and be outstayed his rival to claim an excellent win.

A few horses laid down the challenge to Redzel at the 400 metre mark, but McEvoy was patient and The Everest winner exploded when he was asked for an extra effort.
