The Memsie Stakes is scheduled to take place on 27th August at Caulfield. It is the first Group 1 race of the Melbourne Spring Carnival and runs over a distance of 1400m with prize money worth $1 million.
The horses contesting the Memsie Stakes are usually geared up for the Caulfield Cup, the WX Cox Plate and the Melbourne Cup. The race was boosted to a group 1 race in 2013 and has been won by many prominent runners. In 2021, Behemoth won the race for the second consecutive time. Whether the third time is a charm for Behemoth remains to be seen.
Memsie Stakes is one of the most popular races for betting, and in the past, the punters’ favourites have had a good run. So it makes sense to look for horses at the top of the race odds. During the last 14 years, seven race betting favourites have saluted for the bettors. A recent example is Behemoth. He was the first favourite in 2020 and second favourite in 2021 and managed to win both times.
