Mackinnon Stakes Betting

The Mackinnon Stakes is run on Victoria Derby Day and is part of the Melbourne Spring Carnival. Many Melbourne Cup trainers have used the Mackinnon stakes as a warm up for the Melbourne Cup the following Tuesday, especially if they are high ranking enough to avoid the ballot.

The Mackinnon Stakes is the second highest richest race on the Victoria Derby racecard with over three quarters of a million Australian dollars on offer in prize-money. It's also one of four Group 1 races on the card.
