Emirates Stakes betting is open on the $2 million weight-for-age feature as soon as the nominations on the Flemington showdown are out.
The Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) was formerly known as the Mackinnon Stakes and run the Saturday before on Derby Day.
From 2016 the Emirates Stakes was totally reinvented, making for some unique Emirates Stakes betting for punters.
When looking for the horses to back in the Emirates Stakes odds it is important to remember it was previously run as the Mackinnon Stakes, so looking back at the Emirates Stakes form guide under the old name can be a good indicator.
Emirates Stakes bet types include Win, Place, Each Way and Exotic selections like the Emirates Stakes Trifecta.

Emirates Stakes Favourites
The favourites in Emirates Stakes betting, formerly the Mackinnon Stakes, only have a fair recent record in the Flemington weight-for-age race.
In the decade from 2006 – 2015 just one Emirates Stakes favourite saluted for the punters – So You Think (2010). Since So You Think however the subsequent four Emirates / Mackinnon Stakes winners all jumped at single figures: Glass Harmonium ($7 in 2011), Alcopop ($6 in 2012), Happy Trails ($7 in 2014) and Galio Chop ($8 in 2015).
