The DC Mckay Stakes is an 1100m sprint race that typically attracts a field of above average gallopers who may have previously tackled a race like the Gr3 RN Irwin Stakes at the same course. Horses contesting this race might then consider pressing on to Adelaide's premier autumn sprint, the Gr1 Goodwood in May at the same track.
Quite often the Mckay Stakes has a capacity field which leads to a race of many chances with plenty of value on offer for consistent gallopers in form. Local horses will make up most of the entries for this event and it has been won by some handy types over the years, including Catapulted (2010), Super Elegant (2003), Toledo (1998), Euclase (1991), and Boardwalk Angel (1989).
Despatch (2019) captured the Listed Oakbank Stakes over 1100m at Oakbank before graduating to group success in this event for the Tony McEvoy stable.
Recent DC McKay Stakes winners include Sprightly Lass (2018) and Karacatis (2017).
