Headlined by the Gr1 Turnbull Stakes in Melbourne, the Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes in Sydney, and the final leg of the Hawke's Bay Triple Crown series – the Gr1 Livamol Classic at Hastings - there are 16 stakes races across Australia & New Zealand this weekend. First run in 1865, the Turnbull Stakes boasts an outstanding honour roll of champions that has helped establish it as one of the most prestigious events on the Australian racing calendar. Some of the turf luminaries to have triumphed in the race include Wakeful (1903), Bernborough (1946), Tobin Bronze (1966), Galilee (1968), Leilani (1974), Dulcify (1979), Vo Rogue (1987/88), Super Impose (1989), Better Loosen Up (1990), Let's Elope (1991), Sunline (2001), Northerly (2002), and Makybe Diva (2005). This year, yet another champion will bid to etch their name on the silverware when Winx attempts to win her 21st consecutive race and her 14th at Group One level. The superstar mare is currently favourite at $1.15 with TAB, ahead of Humidor at $4.80. All other runners are at $26 or longer.
