Eagle Farm Racecourse History

Eagle Farm Racecourse is one of Queensland’s premier racecourses and was listed on the Queensland Heritage Register in 2004. 

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. 

Eagle Farm has undergone a major redevelopment spanning almost two years and reopened during the 2016 Brisbane Winter Carnival.

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.

The Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival is the premier carnival in Queensland and is staged at Doomben and Eagle Farm racecourses in Brisbane during May and June each year.

Several Group 1 races take place during the carnival, headed by the $1million Stradbroke Handicap - the richest race of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival - and also including the BTC Cup, Doomben Cup, Doomben 10,000, Queesland Oaks, Queensland Derby and the JJ Atkins.

The Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) is the biggest race in prestige terms and headlines Doomben Racecourse's last day of action during the carnival. It is the leading sprint of the carnival and has been won in the past by the popular names of Apache Cat, Takeover Target and Falvelon.

In the preceding weeks, Doomben kicks off the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival when it stages the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m), a sprint which often gives pointers to the Doomben 10,000 two weeks later. Sandwiched in between is the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m), which attracts the best middle-distance and staying performers rom across Australian and headlines a top-class afternoon of action.

Eagle Farm Racecourse hosts its first meeting of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on the first Saturday in June with the staging of the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m), which features the best of the three-year-old fillies.

The following week at Eagle Farm, Brisbane’s richest race is staged with the running of the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on the same day that the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) and Group 1 The JJ Atkins (1600m) take place.

The Stradbroke is one of the leading sprints in Australia, while the best three-year-old colts will go head-to-head in the Queensland Derby. The JJ Atkins (1600m), formerly known as The TJ Smith, sees the best two-year-olds clash on the final day of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.
