Stradbroke Handicap


Stradbroke Handicap, Eagle Farm

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

Run over 1,400 metres, the Stradbroke Handicap is a Group 1 race taking place at Eagle Farm Racecourse. With a $1,500,000 prize purse, it attracts the absolute cream of the crop of local sprinting talent. The 2020 edition of the Stradbroke Handicap offered a reduced $350,000 in prize money as the racing industry continued to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic before returning to $1.5 million in 2021.  

This race’s namesake is Lord Stradbroke, a famous Queenslander who has familial ties to the inventor of the thoroughbred weight for age scale system.

Many star sprinters have won the Stradbroke Handicap over the years including Rough Habit (1991-92), Dane Ripper (1997) and more recently Trekking (2019).

The Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) run a fortnight prior now serves as the key Stradbroke Handicap lead-up. In 2021 the Kingsford-Smith Cup winner Vega One went on to run second to Tofane in the Stradbroke Handicap results.
