Dane Ripper Stakes

Dane Ripper Stakes, Eagle Farm

Looking for early info on this year’s Dane Ripper Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

Run over 1,300 metres as of 2021, the Dane Ripper Stakes is a Group 2 race taking place at Eagle Farm Racecourse each Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. 

Traditionally held as one of the key support acts on Stradbroke Handicap Day, the Dane Ripper Stakes is open only to mares aged four-years-old and above and is a set weights plus penalties event offering $200,000.

The Dane Ripper Stakes serves as the major lead-up into the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara, and Invincibella (2019) was the last to do the double. Invincibella also won the 2018 edition of the Dane Ripper and in 2019 handed trainer Chris Waller with his fourth victory in the event following his earlier success with fellow dual champion Red Tracer (2012, 2013).

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Queensland Racing, a reshuffled Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival saw the Dane Ripper Stakes take place the weekend after the Stradbroke. The race offered a reduced $175,000 in prize money and took place as a weight-for-age event with no running of the Tattersall’s Tiara in 2020.
