2018 TAB Turnbull Stakes Day: TAB Turnbull Stakes October 04, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia will host the TAB Turnbull Stakes as part of the TAB Turnbull Day festivities. This stakes day is a prelude to the horses that will participate in this year's Melbourne Cup.

The TAB Turnbull Stakes is a Group 1 race for horses four year old and older, will run on set weights with penalties and cover a total race distance of 2,000 meters. Total prize money is set at A$500,000. This is the 5th race of the day and will start at 1PM local time.

Super mare Winx will gun for back-to-back wins as she faces nine rivals. Winx won by 6½ lengths over Ventura Storm and Humidor in last year's Turnbull Stakes.

Speed is the main asset of Winx, if her challengers slows down, she outsprints them to the finish line. Ventura Storm will spearhead the group of nine horses that will challenge Winx.

Joining Ventura Storm are Grunt, Mighty Boss, Kings Will Dream, Jon Snow, Divine Unicorn, Trap for Fools, Tally and Youngstar.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Winx as the favorite to win her 2nd TAB Turnbull Stakes on Saturday noon.
