A VRC Champions Stakes Trifecta could be your last chance to get a huge pay-out in the Melbourne Spring Racing season. As one of the the last big Group 1 races of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington, the race formerly known as 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 Champions Stakes trifecta, which means that the finishing order no longer matters.
It is similar to the Champions Stakes Exacta, except you also have to pick the third place-getter in the Champions Stakes results as well as the winner and runner-up.
Betting on the 2023 Champions Stakes Trifecta is available at Ladbrokes.com.au during the 2023 Melbourne Cup Carnival.
An example of a winning Champions Stakes Trifecta from 2023:

Remember, if you think picking the exact places will be a challenge, you can place a box Champions Stakes trifecta at Ladbrokes.com.au to cover all the combinations.
How To Pick The Champions Stakes Trifecta
The following section will assume that you are going to place a box Champions Stakes trifecta. It also allows you to select more than 3 horses for your picks (though this will cost more).
Essentially, getting your box Champions Stakes trifecta right takes research into the likely place-getters. It is important that you focus on place-getters, though, and not winners. Many a box trifecta has come undone because the punter only focused on potential winners of the event.
For your Champions 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 place-getters, so most of your selections should still be horses with decent records.
