Mackinnon Stakes Lead Up Races

While the new-look Mackinnon Stakes was previously run a week earlier as the Mackinnon Stakes and formerly known as the Emirates Stakes, there are still many of the same lead-up races to check the results of when looking for what horses to back and sack in the Mackinnon Stakes Odds for 2020.

The key Mackinnon Stakes lead-up race producing more winners of the weight-for-age Group 1 spring feature than any other race is the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) run over the same distance and conditions at Moonee Valley a fortnight earlier.

From 2005 – 2020 the Cox Plate produced nine Emirates (Mackinnon) Stakes winners including So You Think (2010) who completed the double – a popular punt with customers at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) held in mid-October over the mile and a half is another good Mackinnon Stakes form race to follow.

Mackinnon Stakes Favourites

The Mackinnon Stakes results over the past decade or so haven’t been all that successful for the horses jumping favourite in the race.

From 2005 – 2020 just three Emirates Stakes (Mackinnon Stakes) favourites saluted for the punters: Lad Of The Manor (2005), So You Think (2010) and Arcadia Queen (2020).

That said, single-figure fancies in the Mackinnon Stakes betting markets have dominated the results including five straight wins from 2010-2015 before a 2016 upset by Awesome Rock. The runners under $10 in Mackinnon Stakes betting were back in winning form in 2017 with the success of Tosen Stardom ($6.50). Another upset was on the cards in the 2018 Mackinnon Stakes results with the win by $26 outsider Trap For Fools. In 2019 the second favourite in betting Magic Wand ($4.80) beat home the top fancy Melody Belle ($3.80) in the Mackinnon Stakes quinella.

A top Mackinnon Stakes betting tip then is to take the single-figure horses paying under $10 through Ladbrokes.com.au in the Mackinnon Stakes betting markets, but to lay the favourite.

Place Exotic Mackinnon Stakes Bets

If you’re looking to win big on the Mackinnon Stakes results, look at placing an exotic bet on the race through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Exotic bet types like the Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta are trickier to predict than just a straight Win bet but they pay out far more if successful.
