Picking the winning Emirates Stakes Quinella during the Melbourne Cup Carnival involves predicting the first two horses over the line in the Flemington weight-for-age feature – in any order – on the first Saturday of November.
For those who are entirely new to exotic horse racing bets, in a quinella you simply need to pick the top two finishers regardless of their finishing order. Most other exotic bets – like the Emirates Stakes Exacta – require you to be specific about the finishing order, but not in a quinella.
Betting on the 2017 Emirates Stakes quinella will be available at Ladbrokes.com.au closer to the 2017 Melbourne Cup Carnival.
An example of a winning Emirates Stakes Quinella from 2016:

Note that this would have won regardless of which of those horses came first. Even if Hauraki had won the race defeating Awesome Rock, this Emirates Stakes Quinella would have paid out as a winner.
