Horse Racing | Memsie Stakes Day

Held annually in late August at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne, Memsie Stakes Day is one of the biggest events on the Melbourne Spring Carnival calendar. Elevated to Group 1 in 2014, the Memsie Stakes is the major race on the card. As of 2014, the Memsie Stakes is the first Group 1 of the new racing season.

While the Group 1 assumes star status, there is an excellent support card, including the Group 3 H.D.F McNeil Stakes, the Group 3 The Heath 1100 and the recently transferred Group 3 W.W. Cockram Stakes, which was originally held a fortnight earlier on P B Lawrence Stakes Day. Memsie Stakes Day boasts prize money of over $2M spread over nine races.
