Reignite precious memories as Stradbroke Season returns to the heritage-listed Eagle Farm Racecourse for undoubtedly one of the most distinguished race days of the season.
Immerse yourself in a day steeped in tradition, with the timeless Derby Day fashion theme of Black & White, carefully curated hospitality experiences, magnificent entertainment and renowned live racing.
Derby Day takes on a new level of prestige in 2021 by hosting two of the most illustrious Group One races of the winter racing season, the AUD700,000 Kingsford-Smith Cup and the AUD600,000 Queensland Derby.
The Derby moves from its traditional Stradbroke slot this year to headline the third Group One day of the carnival. It’s the race that launched Kiwi hero Rough Habit’s amazing winter carnival feats and in more recent times has been heavily targeted by Hong Kong buyers, who see it as a perfect forerunner for unearthing their own future stars.
The Kingsford Smith Cup is relatively new in name, but under its previous guise of the BTC Cup had an honour roll headed by none other than the great Black Caviar.
This year, the Group Two Sires Produce Stakes, a bonafide launching pad to stardom, is given due recognition, with prizemoney rising to AUD1 million after recent star winners like Zoustar and Melody Belle.
Stradbroke Season presented by TAB – the best time to be in Brisbane.
