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).

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 2022?

Which horse will win the 2022 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.
  • Favourite Backers – The top fancies in Memsie Stakes betting have an outstanding recent record in the event.
  • 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.
