Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes

Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes, Flemington Racecourse
Looking for early info on this year’s Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before the race.

Registered as the Maybe Mahal Stakes, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes is part of the Lexus Melbourne Cup Day race fixture. A relatively new race, having only been inaugurated in 2005, it obtained Group 3 status in 2012.

If a mare does well in this race, her owner may choose to have her nominated for a run in the 1500 metre Sandown Stakes, which takes place less than two weeks later.

For punters looking for a good lead-in race, the 1400 metre Tristarc Stakes, as well as the 1600 metre Ladies’ Day Vase may reveal which mares show promise.

The name of the race is borrowed from the Maybe Mahal, trained by legendary Bart Cummings and recipient of Australian Racehorse of the Year two times in a row.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Track times – Try and back a horse that can take 1400 metres in 1:22 or less.
  • Peak Performance – Any mares that had a solid season as a three year old, might be ready to have their best year ever as a four year old. Breakout performances can mean a big payout.
