The George Ryder Stakes is the 5th race scheduled for Saturday and race time is set at 2:45PM local time. The total prize money is a whopping A$1 million and the race winner will have the lion's share of A$585,000.

The nine-race field will be headlined by Winx. This superb mare will gun for her 16th straight wins, 10 of which are Group 1 victories. Winx will start from barrier 8 and will go up against Canterbury Stakes winner Le Romain, D.K. Weir-trained Tosen Stardom and The Chairman's Sprint Prize winner Chautauqua.

The horse race handicappers have installed Winx as the favorite to score a back-to-back Georger Ryder Stakes win on Saturday noon.
