The Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes Betting Odds

One of the most exciting Group 3 thoroughbred horse races, the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes, is held every March in Melbourne, Australia. It is a 1200 meter race solely for 2 year old fillies. This year's race has lately been held at Flemington Racecourse, which also hosts one of the country's richest horse races later in the year.

A stakes race is a type of horse race held in most parts of the world where thoroughbred racing is conducted. It is notable for the fact that at least part of the prize purse is made up of the entry fees which are paid by owners of the horses competing in the race. A Group 3 race in Australia is part of four groups (1 through 3, and listed races), in which only the best horses in Australia and New Zealand are allowed to compete.

The running of the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes this year featured a 150,000 Australian dollar (about 112,000 U.S. dollars) prize payout. My Emotion, the 2 year old filly from New Zealand won the race in her maiden debut, coming out of the gates in 4th place and improving her position as the race went on. She pulled even with the race leader at 300 meters and eked out a win at the tape.
