Queensland Derby History

Three-year-old stayers compete in the Queensland Derby which is a set-weights race held on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

Other races on Brisbane’s finest day of racing include the $1.5 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m), Group 1 JJ Atkins Plate (1400m), Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m), Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) and the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m).

Hermit won the inaugural Queensland Derby back in 1868 when the race was run at Gayndah Racecourse before moving to Eagle Farm in 1871.

In 1870, the Queensland Derby was run on two occasions with Grafton capturing the event on both occasions.

With $600,000 in prizemoney, the Queensland Derby attracts the state’s best three-year-old stayers, and has long been regarded as one of the premier races on the Queensland racing calendar.

Other notable winners of the race include Tulloch (1957), Kingston Town (1980), Strawberry Road (1983), Rough Habit (1990), Royal Magic (1992), Freemason (2000), Half Hennessy (2003), Riva San (2008) and Shootoff (2011).

Talented stayer Shocking was beaten a long-neck by Court Ruler in the Queensland Derby in 2009 before going on to win the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) in November at Flemington Racecourse during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
