Turnbull Stakes Betting Odds 2021

The Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) will be run at Flemington on Saturday, October 2. Read below for last years betting odds.

Chris Waller’s five-year-old mare Verry Elleegant was an impressive winner of the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick on August 22. She just got the better of stablemate Star Of The Seas while Fierce Impact was close-up in third place. Verry Elleegant won the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens in March.

At her latest run, Verry Elleegant didn’t have a lot of luck in the small field of seven runners; she finished fourth behind Kolding in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m). Looking to bounce back, Verry Elleegant is the $4.60 favourite for the Turnbull Stakes.

The Paul Preusker-trained six-year-old gelding Surprise Baby finished second at his first run back from a spell in the Group 2 Feehan Stakes (1600m) won by Humidor. Surprise Baby ran fifth in the 2019 Melbourne Cup (3200m) and will likely head towards ‘the race that stops a nation’ in November. Surprise Baby is the second elect at $5.50 and has received early support in the Turnbull.
