Looking for early info on this year’s Doomben 10,000? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

Run over 1,200 metres, the Doomben 10,000 is a Group 1 race taking place at Doomben Racecourse each Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Since a change to the Winter line-up in Queensland back in 2017, the Doomben 10,000 is now the opening elite level of the festival and runs on a Saturday in mid-May. 

With an increased prize purse of $1,000,000 from 2021, the weight-for-age event now serves as a key lead-up into the Group 1 Kingsford Smith Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm a fortnight later. 

The Bostonian (2019) from New Zealand was the last galloper to do the Doomben 10,000 – Kingsford Smith Cup double, winning the former at a blowout price of 40/1.

Run and won since 1933 the event has been one by plenty of stars over the years including the great heavyweight champion Bernborough (1946), super sprinter Manikato (1979), dual hero Apache Cat (2008-9), the mighty Redzel (2017) and Eduardo (2021).
