The DC Mckay Stakes is an 1100m sprint event comprising of the best South Australian talent as well as the odd traveller.

Interest in this race is high as it’s the main lead up event to the Group 1 Goodwood held at Morphettville in May.

Horses running here often come through the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes, also at the same venue.

The DC Mckay Stakes regularly boasts capacity fields and finding a winner can often be a tricky affair.

Look for horses already carrying a bit of fitness as well as those getting in on a good weight.

Class also counts for a bit and as you can see from the previous winners there has been a bit of talent in this race.

Super Elegant won it in 2003 with Bomber Bill getting up in 2005.

Here De Angels burst onto the scene with his 2007 victory and I Am Invincible proved just that in 2009.

Since then Catapulted won in 2010 and Streetcar Magic surprised in 2011.
