The D.C. McKay Stakes is a South Australian Jockey Club Group 3 Thoroughbred horse race for horses aged three years old and over, run as a quality handicap over a distance of 1100 metres at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide, Australia during the SAJC Autumn Carnival.[1] Total prize money for the race is A$175,000.

History[edit]

The race is named in honour of former SAJC committeeman (elected originally in 1950) and horse owner D.C. McKay.[2]

The race is considered a major prep lead up race for the Group 1 The Goodwood later in the Autumn Carnival.[1]

The following horses have won the D.C. McKay–Goodwood double: Grey John (1969), Wise Virgin (1973), Puncheon (1976), Comaida Boy (1979), Lord Galaxy (1986), Boardwalk Angel (1989).[1] Bomber Bill has won both races but not in the same year.

The race record time for the current distance is 1:02.10 set by Streetcar Magic in 2011.[3]
