Worth $2 million and run on the final day of the carnival, the race routinely attracts top quality runners to Flemington.

Named after former chairman of the Victoria Racing Club, Lauchlan Kenneth Scobie Mackinnon, the Mackinnon Stakes was previously held Derby Day but was shifted to the final day of the carnival in 2016.

Some absolute stars of the track have delivered wins in the Mackinnon including Let’s Elope, three-time winner Tranquil Star and the horse that did the Mackinnon Stakes/Melbourne Cup double in 1999 Rogan Josh.
