Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta

2021 Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta Results

  • 1st: #4 Zaaki
  • 2nd: #2 Cascadian
  • 2nd: #7 Mo'unga

A Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta could be your last chance to get a huge payout in the Melbourne Spring Racing season. As the last big Group 1 race of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington, the Mackinnon Stakes offers one of the largest trifecta pools punters will see until the height of the summer.

In case you are new to exotic horse racing bets, let’s briefly go over what a trifecta is. A trifecta is a bet that requires you to pick the first three finishers in exact order. If you get the first three finishers right, but you picked the wrong order, your bet will not win. For this reason, many punters choose to place a box Mackinnon Stakes trifecta, which means that the finishing order no longer matters.

It is similar to the Mackinnon Stakes Exacta, except you also have to pick the third-placegetter in the Mackinnon Stakes results as well as the winner and runner-up.

Betting on the 2021 Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta is available at Ladbrokes.com.au during the 2021 Melbourne Cup Carnival.

An example of a winning Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta from 2021:

1st – #4 Zaaki ($2.25F)
2nd – #2 Cascadian
3rd – #7 Mo’unga

If Mo’unga and Cascadian had swapped places behind the Mackinnon Stakes winner, then this bet would not have paid off. Remember, if you think picking the exact places will be a challenge, you can place a box Mackinnon Stake trifecta at Ladbrokes.com.au to cover all the combinations.

How To Pick The Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta

The following section will assume that you are going to place a box Mackinnon Stakes trifecta. It also allows you to select more than 3 horses for your picks (though this will cost more).

Essentially, getting your box Mackinnon Stakes trifecta right takes research into the likely placegetters. It is important that you focus on placegetters, though, and not winners. Many a box trifecta has come undone because the punter only focused on potential Emirates / Mackinnon Stakes winners.

For your Mackinnon Stakes trifecta, there are a few traits you should look for in your selections. Horses that ran well in the Crystal Mile and Cox Plate are always worth considering. While unknowns can win the race, the places are usually filled with Group 1 winners and placegetters, so most of your selections should still be horses with decent records.
