Stradbroke Handicap



Stradbroke Handicap

One of the premier days at Eagle Farm racecourse will fall on 8 June 2013 when the Brisbane Turf Club presents the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm.

Experienced, quality sprinters can be expected to take to the turf to test each other over the 1400 metre course. This Winter Racing Carnival event also offers the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes and the Queensland Derby, so there is something to appeal to punters no matter the distance or conditions they prefer. Prize money for the event is worth 1,360,000.

The Stradbroke Handicap has the reputation of being the premier 1400 metre handicap event of the carnival, so a talented field of the best thoroughbreds appears for a chance to realize a significant payday from the $1 million dollar race. Top performers are carrying extra burdens as a result of their success, with only Rough Habit and Campaign King managing to win whilst carrying top weight.

The Stradbroke Handicap was first run in 1890 as a six fulrong principal race. It remained so for many years, including the World War II years of 1942-45. A furlong was added in 1953 and the arrival of the metric system in 1973 found it made 1400m. It went straight to Group 1 in 1980 and has remained constant in distance and classification ever since.

Storm King was a1909 winner that went on to legendary status. Gold Tie was the first to notch consecutive Stradbroke handicaps in 1918-19.  Highland, Petrol Lager, Lucky Ring, Rough Habit and Black Piranha are the others to tally two.
