Turnbull Stakes

Distance 2000m
Grade Group 1
Track  Flemington
Prizemoney $500,000
Class Set Weights with Penalties
2017 winner Winx ($1.20)
 

The Turnbull Stakes is a Group 1 race run annually at Flemington Racecourse. It is run under set weights with penalties conditions for horses four years old and above that are not maidens, and contested for a prize pool of $500,000. 

The Turnbull is a race that typically attracts an interesting mix of quality horses. There are the weight-for-age specialists that target the Turnbull before going on to the Cox Plate.

However, because the winner of the Turnbull is granted exemption from a ballot in the Caulfield Cup, high-class stayers also target the race, before going on to not only the Caulfield but Melbourne Cup.

The 2,000 metre start at Flemington allows jockeys a straight run over 500 metres on the back straight before hitting the expansive turn into the home straight. With ample time to find a good spot on the huge track, it is typically the best horse that triumphs on the day.

First run way back in 1865 under the name of the Royal Park Stakes, the Turnbull has undergone plenty of name, distance, class and conditions changes. In 1948 the race was renamed the Turnbull after the then VRC Chairman Richard Turnbull. It wasn't until 1972 that the 2,000 metre range was finalised, creating the conditions that appeal to middle distance horses and stayers alike. 

There have been several greats of Australian racing that list the Turnbull as one of their achievements. Amounis, Ajax, Rising Fast, Dulcify, Sunline, Northerly, Makybe Diva and most recently Winx all list on the Turnbull honour roll. 

2017 Turnbull Stakes

Winx's victory in the 2017 edition was the most impressive in living memory. The mighty mare's first run at Flemington, Winx romped away to win by six and a half lengths, with jockey Hugh Bowman not needing to touch the whip in a memorable win.
