Memsie Stakes Winners & History -

Looking for early info on this year’s Memsie Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

One of the first races of note to occur in Spring, the Memsie Stakes is usually seen as a predictor of future success in some of the important races during the Spring Racing Carnival. 

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).
