(formerly TJ Smith Stakes)
June 08, 2017 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane, Australia will host the JJ Atkins Stakes. This is a Group 1 race for two years on set weights and will cover a total race distance of 1600 meters of the turf-surfaced racecourse.

Fifteen young thoroughbred horses will compete on Saturday's Race No. 6 with a post time of 2:20PM AEST. Leading the pack will be BRC Sires' Produce Stakes winner Melody Bell. This New Zealand-bred filly will chase her 4th win of its young racing career and will also try to earn back-to-back win on two consecutive race weeks.

Melody Bell will also face a stellar line up of great competitors including Capital Gain and Taking Aim, who also raced at the BRC Sires' Produce Stakes.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Melody Belle as the favorite to win the JJ Atkins Stakes race on Saturday.
