The 2017 Chelmsford Stakes Day results will be updated all afternoon at horseracing.com.au and the obvious highlight will be the presence of star mare Winx in the feature race.

It is not all about Winx at Royal Randwick this afternoon and there are a number of other big races as we work into the 2017 Spring Racing Carnival proper.
The Concorde Stakes, Furious Stakes and Tramway Stakes are all packed full of quality and outside of the Chelmsford Stakes there is plenty of value to be found in all the major races.
Keep coming back to horseracing.com.au all afternoon to keep up to date with all the 2017 Chelmsford Stakes Day results and enjoy the run of Winx!
