Racing at Eagle Farm began in 1865 when run by the Queensland Turf Club (QTC), until it merged with Doomben Racecourse’s Brisbane Turf Club (BTC) to become the Brisbane Racing Club (BRC) in 2009.

The facilities at Eagle Farm are quite unique, with the grandstand – made of wrought iron and timber – as well as other areas of the course preserved Victorian and Federation Heritage buildings.

A number of champion thoroughbreds have raced at Eagle Farm throughout its 157-year history. With more prizemoney than ever before offered now, the strength of racing at Eagle Farm will continue to grow in years to come.

Eagle Farm


Eagle Farm hosts a number of Group and Listed races throughout the year, with six Group 1 races run and won at the track.

The Stradbroke Handicap is the premier race in Queensland, with horses from all over Australia and across the Tasman targeted towards the 1400m event. Also on Stradbroke Day is the J.J. Atkins for two-year-olds, with the Group 1 event run over 1600m.

Three-year-old stayers can have their shot at Group 1 glory at Eagle Farm in the Queensland Derby (2400m) and Queensland Oaks (2200m). The Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) is a key lead-up race to Stradbroke Day, while the Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) gives fillies and mares a crack at winning a Group 1 race before the end of the racing season.

In recent years, Stradbroke Day has been boosted significantly with the running of the Group 2 Q22 (2200m). The Q22 has a purse of $1.2 million and was won by Zaaki in its inaugural year (2021). The Group 2 Brisbane Cup (3200m) is also run at that race meeting, along with two other Group races and three Listed events.


Eagle Farm has a circumference of 2027m and a home straight of 434m which tends to give most horses a winning chance. Eagle Farm has three chute starts – 1000m, 1400m and 1600m. Racing at Eagle Farm is conducted over distances between 1000m and 3200m.


Eagle Farm is located across the road from Doomben Racecourse, with the main entrance on Lancaster Road, Ascot. Racecourse Road leads into the front entry, while Nudgee Road, Gordon Street and Mein Street circle the course.
