2018 Mackinnon Stakes Results

  • 1st: #4 Trap For Fools
  • 2nd: #7 Latrobe
  • 3rd: #9 Extra Brut

Mackinnon 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 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) was formerly known as the Emirates 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.

Mackinnon 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.

From 2006 – 2017 just one Emirates Stakes favourite saluted for the punters – So You Think (2010). Since So You Think however five of the subsequent Emirates / Mackinnon Stakes winners jumped at single figures – Glass Harmonium ($7 in 2011), Alcopop ($6 in 2012), Happy Trails ($7 in 2014), Galio Chop ($8 in 2015) and Tosen Stardom ($6.50 in 2017), while there was an upset win by Awesome Rock ($19 in 2016) in the new-look race.

A top Emirates Stakes betting tip then looking at that Emirates Stakes form guide fact is to back the single-figures in the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Win, but lay the favourite.

Mackinnon Stakes Betting Options

All the usual betting options are open on the Emirates Stakes including backing the Emirates Stakes winner (Win), backing the Emirates Stakes placegetters (Place) and backing the Emirates Stakes exotic bets like the first three over the line in the Emirates Stakes Trifecta in correct order.

The Emirates Stakes Quinella, Emirates Stakes Exacta and Emirates Stakes Trifecta are obviously hard results to predict but they payout generously if successful.

A good Emirates Stakes tip to help with exotic bets is to Box your exotics at Ladbrokes.com.au to cover all Emirates Stakes results.
