Doomben Cup History

A weight-for-age staying race that is open to horses aged three-years-old and upwards, the Doomben Cup carries $700,000 in prizemoney and is one of the major races held during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

The feature attracts some of the best middle-distance and staying performers bidding for success in the Group 1 race.

A number of features support the Doomben Cup, including the Group 2 The Roses (2000m) and Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m).

Rough Habit is the only horse to have won the Doomben Cup on three occasions; he first claimed the feature as a four-year-old by a dominant 4.3 lengths as the $1.40 favourite in 1991.

Rough Habit then scored narrowly in 1992 as the $1.70 favourite before completing the hat-trick in 1993 as the $3.50 popular elect.

The Doomben Cup was first held in 1933 when won by Pentheus and has been held over varying distances between 2000m and 2200m until the current trip was settled on in 2012.

It has carried Group 1 status since 1980 when taken out by Golden Rhapsody.

Other notable winners of the Doomben Cup include Bernborough (1946), Earlwood (1959-60), Lord Ben (1974), Marceau (1978), Danewin (1995), Juggler (1996), Might And Power (1998), Intergaze (1999), Mr Bureaucrat (2002), Above Deck (2006), Metal Bender (2010), Scenic Shot (2009 & 2011), Streama (2014), Our Ivanhowe (2016) and Comin’ Through (2018).

Lord Hybrow (1988) and Scenic Shot (2009) are the only two gallopers to have captured the Doomben Cup-Brisbane Cup double.
