Mackinnon Stakes Betting

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 Mackinnon Stakes betting for punters.

When looking for the horses to back in the Mackinnon Stakes odds it is important to remember it was previously run as the Emirates Stakes, so looking back at the Emirates Stakes form guide under the old name can be a good indicator.

Mackinnon Stakes bet types include Win, Place, Each Way and Exotic selections like the Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta.

  • To Win: #15 Melody Belle ($5)

Presented rock hard fit from a wide alley to run second to the Irish-trained winner in the race 12 months ago and now this Kiwi star returns trying to go one better. It’s a field half the size of last year and she comes off back-to-back Group 1 wins in NZ ahead of this. She’s now a 12-time winner and looks every chance to make it a bakers’ dozen and salute at elite level in Australia for the second time over her pet distance.

Mackinnon Stakes Favourites

The favourites in Mackinnon Stakes betting, formerly the Emirates Stakes, only have a fair recent record in the Flemington weight-for-age race.

From 2006 – 2020 just two Mackinnon Stakes favourites have saluted for the punters with So You Think (2010) and Arcadia Queen (2020). Between So You Think and Arcadia Queen six of the subsequent Emirates / Mackinnon Stakes winners also jumped at single figures – Magic Wand ($4.80 in 2019), 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 and a blowout in 2018 when Trap For Fools won at Mackinnon Stakes odds of $26.

A top Mackinnon Stakes betting tip then looking at that Mackinnon 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 Mackinnon Stakes including backing the Mackinnon Stakes winner (Win), backing the Mackinnon Stakes placegetters (Place) and backing the Mackinnon Stakes exotic bets like the first three over the line in the Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta in correct order.

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

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