Memsie Stakes Winners & History - Neds.com.au.

The Group 1 Memsie Stakes, run over 1400m, is the opening elite level of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It is the second Group 1 races of the new racing season each year following the Group 1 Winx Stakes in Sydney.

Because of its early spring date, there is a lot of interest to see which horses will come back with a strong start after their winter spell.

Offering $1 million in prize money, the Memsie Stakes has been won by plenty of class horses over the years including Sincero (2012), So You Think (2010), Weekend Hussler (2008), triple Melbourne Cup champion Makybe Diva (2005) and the most recent dual champion Sunline (2000, 2001).

In 2020 the Memsie Stakes winner Behemoth saluted for the punters before franking the form with a next-up win in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at the same track and distance.

Behemoth returned to successfully defend his title in 2021 become the first dual Memsie Stakes winner since Sunline (2000, 2001).

WHICH HORSE WILL WIN THE Memsie Stakes in 2023?

Which horse will win the 2023 Memsie Stakes comes down to a number of key form factors including the barriers, form over the 1400m distance and their previous Group 1 race experience.

When selecting the Memsie Stakes winner it is also important to consider:

  • Group 1 Grade – The majority of Memsie Stakes winners in recent history have had previous Group 1 race experience.
  • Bad Barriers – Very few horses have won the Memsie Stakes from a double-digit barrier in the past decade. Mr Brightside (14 in 2023) was the last to overcome a wide alley and win.
  • Favourite Backers – The top fancies in Memsie Stakes betting have an outstanding recent record in the event. Mr Brightside ($2.70 in 2023) was the last favourite to salute for the punters.
  • Adelaide Lead-Up: Two-time Memsie Stakes winner Behemoth (2020-21) came via a lead-up win in Adelaide’s Group 3 SAJC Spring Stakes (1200m) ahead of both of his victories.

Memsie Stakes FAVOURITES 2023

The early favourites in Memsie Stakes betting for 2023 include All-Star Mile / Doncaster Mile double champ Mr Brightside, the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained five-time Group 1 hero Alligator Blood, and the consistent Mo’unga for Annabel Neasham.

From 2008 – 2023 nine Memsie Stakes favourites saluted for the punters most recently Vega Magic ($2.45 in 2017),  Behemoth ($3.30 in 2020), and Mr Brightside ($2.70 in 2023). Behemoth jumped at shorter odds ($3.20) for a successful title defence in 2021 but it was third-placed Tofane ($3) who was that year’s Memsie Stakes favourite.
