Horse Racing | Memsie Stakes

Ran over seven furlongs (1400m), the Memsie Stakes is a competitive Group 1 weight-for-age race held at Caulfield Racecourse on the Memsie Stakes Day, with the winner pocketing $240,000. In 2014, the race was elevated from Group 2 to Group 1. The race generally attracts a number of talented gallopers returning from a spell or early in their preparation for the major spring races ahead. With the event being held so early on in the Melbourne Spring Carnival, it’s often hard to get a line on the form.

A good run by a stayer is often a good indicator of better things to come deeper in the spring. In 2013, Happy Trails backed up a Memsie Stakes 2nd placing with a win in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes, while Green Moon (5th) went on to claim a memorable Melbourne Cup win a couple months later. Other turf stars on the Memsie Stakes honour roll include; Atlantic Jewel, So You Think, Weekend Hussler, Miss Finland, Makybe Diva, Sunline and Manikato.
