Mackinnon Stakes Quinella

Picking the winning Mackinnon 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 Mackinnon Stakes Exacta – require you to be specific about the finishing order, but not in a quinella.

Betting on the 2020 Mackinnon Stakes quinella will be available at Ladbrokes.com.au closer to the 2020 Melbourne Cup Carnival.

An example of a winning Mackinnon Stakes Quinella from 2019:

  • 1st: #14 Magic Wand ($4.80)
  • 2nd: #15 Melody Belle ($3.80F)

Note that this would have won regardless of which of those horses came first. Even if the beaten favourite Melody Belle had won the race defeating Magic Wand, this Mackinnon Stakes Quinella would have paid out as a winner.

How To Pick The Mackinnon Stakes Quinella

Picking the Mackinnon Stakes Quinella will need to depend on research, but the nature of the race can actually make it necessary to place a box Mackinnon Stakes Quinella that will cover more than 2 horses.

When deciding on your Mackinnon Stakes Quinella picks, there are a few things to consider. First of all, any runners who were also in the Crystal Mile or the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) should be considered.

The Cox Plate has proved the key Mackinnon Stakes Form Guide to follow over the years.
