Emirates Stakes Day Betting Promotions

November 2, 2016

Stakes Day bonus betting offers

The Group 1 Emirates Stakes is the feature race of the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Until this year, the Emirates Stakes was a Group 1 handicap race run over 1 mile. On Saturday 5th November, the Emirates Stakes will be held over 2000m and will be a weight-for-age event. The race is effectively the old Mackinnon Stakes, which was perennially held on Derby Day. History aside, there are some great bookmaker deals available on the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Betting suggestion

As we have seen for most of the Spring Carnival, the bookmaker promotions focus on races 1 through 5 on Stakes Day. The following betting operators are offering bonus bet refunds on these races:

  • William Hill ( only first 4 races)
  • Luxbet
  • CrownBet

Suggestion for the Emirates

It’s really hard to go past Betstar’s offer on the Emirates Stakes. It’s cash back offer, which is even more valuable. Sportsbet is also offering a refund on the event, however, their offer is returned in bonus bets. Outside of these two promotions, it’s time to go back to selecting a bookmaker that offers the best value betting product on the race.
