KINGSFORD-SMITH CUP HISTORY

The Kingsford-Smith Cup and Doomben 10,000 are often the first two steps prior to the Stradbroke.

The Kingsford-Smith Cup is the lone Group 1 on the day with support races including the Group 2 BRC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m), along with five Group 3 events. 

It is held over the sprint distance of 1300m and is an open weight-for-age race that is either targeted by runners resuming from spells or those having had a small let-up from the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Although it has only held Group 1 status since 2006, the stars to have won the race reads like a who’s who of Australian racing.

It was first contested in 1964 when taken out by Rashlore when the event was known as the JT Delaney Quality Handicap. It has had numerous name changes with the event being called the BTC Cup between 2004-16. In 2017, the race became known as the Kingsford-Smith Cup, named after Australian aviator Charles Kingsford Smith. 

Black Caviar is the most famous horse to have won the event with the unbeaten mare having claimed success by two lengths ahead of Hay List as the $1.10 favourite in 2011.

Other notable winners of the Kingsford-Smith Cup include Vinegar Joe (1980), Strawberry Road (1983), High Regard (1989), Buck’s Pride (1993-94), Accomplice (1997), Falvelon (2000 & 2003), Apache Cat (2008), Albert The Fat (2010), Sea Siren (2012), Malaguerra (2016) and Clearly Innocent (2017).

EAGLE FARM RACECOURSE

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.

EAGLE FARM 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.

The course proper has a circumference of 2027m and the home straight is 434m long.
