See Winx go for her 28th-consecutive win, racing in the Group 1 TAB Turnbull Stakes!

If you could see a potential future Lexus Melbourne Cup winner run an exhilarating 2000m spring race, you’d jump at the chance. TAB Turnbull Stakes Day is the ultimate preview of all of the Melbourne Cup Carnival stars. On this day, you will be treated to some of the finest thoroughbred racing in Australia, featuring an all-black type race schedule boasting more than $1.88 million in prize money. 

Long considered a solid guide for predicting future Melbourne Cup Carnival champions, the Group 1 TAB Turnbull Stakes boasts $502,500 in prizemoney and is the first feature 2000m race of the spring. Who could forgot last year’s edition, captured by the mighty mare Winx in her first ever race appearance at Flemington?

Supporting races include the $201,500 Blazer Stakes, $202,000 TAB Edward Manifold Stakes and $201,500 Gilgai Stakes, all at Group 2 level, while the $302,500 Group 3 The Bart Cummings offers valuable ballot exemption for this year’s Lexus Melbourne Cup. The all-black type race schedule confirms TAB Turnbull Stakes Day as one of the finest on the Australian racing calendar.

This sets the scene for an exciting 2018 Melbourne Cup Carnival.
