Tattersall's Tiara History and Guide

The Tattersall's Tiara, formerly known as the Winter Stakes, is the final Group 1 race of the season in Australia and takes place at Eagle Farm in June each year.

Held on the last day of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival, the weight-for-age conditions race carries a prize fund of $500,000 and is limited to fillies and mares aged three-years-old and upwards. It is run over the distance of 1400m.

The race was first held in 1989 when introduced as the listed Winter Stakes before being upgraded to a Group 3 contest in 1996 and Group 2 status a decade later. It was quickly made up into a Group 1 and became the Tattersall's Tiara in 2012 when taking on the name of the Tattersall's Racing Club who run and organise the race meeting.

The list of star fillies and mares to have won the Tattersall's Tiara include inaugural winner La Posette (1989), Piper’s Belle (1990), Zetoile (1994), Mamzelle Pedrille (1995), Tripping (1996), Dane Ripper (1997), Bonanova (2000 and 2001), Mon Mekki (2003), Miss Potential (2004), Nova Star (2007), Russeting (2009) and Melito (2010).

The path to the Tattersall's Tiara is traditionally via the Group 3 Lady Of The Turf Stakes, which takes place over 1350m at Doomben Racecourse during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, and the Group 3 Dane Ripper Stakes, which is staged over 1400m at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap Day two weeks before the Tattersall's Tiara.

Tripping was the last horse to complete the Dane Ripper-Tattersall's Tiara double back in 1996 but Red Tracer will attempting a second tilt at the double in 2013 having won the Dane Ripper for the second time running.

Joining the Tattersall's Tiara on the schedule are the Group 3 Tattersall's Cup and the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes.

The name of the Winter Stakes continues to be used in Australian racing as Warwick Farm stages a listed race of the same name each July.

Eagle Farm Racecourse

Eagle Farm Racecourse is one of Queensland’s premier racecourses and has undergone a major redevelopment and opened up again in 2016.

It is located at one end of Racecourse Road in the suburb of Ascot, approximately 7km from the Brisbane CBD. Doomben Racecourse is located nearby in the same suburb.

Eagle Farm stages Group 1 racing during the Brisbane Winter Carnival and Queensland Winter Carnival with the track host to the Queensland Oaks, Queensland Derby, Stradbroke Handicap, JJ Atkins and Tattersall's Tiara.

The Eagle Farm Racecourse was established in 1863 and had its main grandstand completed in 1890. Hunter and Corrie and architect John H. Buckeridge jointly designed the grandstands which are known as the Paddock Stands. 

In 1941 Eagle Farm Racecourse was taken over by the military authorities to house thousands of American troops during the Pacific War. It was then known as U.S. Camp Ascot. 

Track Description

Eagle Farm Racecourse is an even oval shaped track with sweeping bends on either side of the straight. Races are conducted in a clockwise direction.
