The 2015 Brisbane Racing Carnival is the highlight of the Queensland racing calendar and takes place from late April to late June.

With ongoing construction at Eagle Farm Racecourse, the carnival will be held at Doomben and Gold Coast Racecourses.

Queensland’s premier racing event attracts a host of top-liner gallopers from Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide while also offering a shot at Group 1 glory for some outstanding locally-trained thoroughbreds. 

The $2 million Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) has had its distance shortened from its usual 1400m and will be held at Doomben Racecourse.
Group 1 racing kicks off on May 9 with the running of the Doomben Cup (2000m) for stayers and the BTC Cup (1200m) for sprinters.

Two weeks later, the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) is the feature race of the day, and although it is the only elite level race, the Group 2 QTC Sires Produce Stakes (1350m) and a further six Group 3 races add to a fantastic day of racing.

The following week sees the running of the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m), while the Stradbroke Handicap (1350m), Queensland Derby (2400m) and The TJ Smith (1600m) are held one week later on June 6.

The Group 1 Winter Stakes (Tattersal’s Tiara 1400m) held on June 20 is the curtain closer for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and attracts a quality field of mares.
