2013 Stradbroke Handicap Barrier Draw

The sunshine state’s richest race will light up Eagle Farm Racecourse this Saturday with the Stradbroke Handicap 2013 taking centre stage on the weekend, the final field and barrier draw for the $1.36 million classic due for release at 11am (AEST) on Wednesday.

Officially 40 horses are still listed as entries for the Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) which for the first time this year will offer a full one million in prize money to the winner.

Two gallopers inside the top 18, which is the maximum number of starters in the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival showdown, however have been ruled out early.

The first was last year’s Stradbroke Handicap winner Pear Tart who having been sold last week as part of the liquidation of Nathan Tinkler’s soon to be extinct Patinack Farm operation will now be retired.

Then today news broke that Chris Waller would not be accepting for his talented mare Arinosa who is suffering from a slight hoof abscess and who will be saved instead for the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara over the same track and distance on June 22.

With acceptances to be taken tomorrow morning the Stradbroke Handicap 2013 barrier draw will then be conducted live at 11am.

In anticipation of the final field and gates being released the team at Races.com.au thought they’d take an early look at some of the key Stradbroke barrier statistics so you know right off the bat which horses statistically have the advantage when the barriers are drawn tomorrow morn.

Stradbroke Handicap Barrier Statistics

  • Last year’s winning Stradbroke Handicap barrier was gate five (Mid Summer Music)
  • Mid Summer Music was just the second horse to win the race from that gate in the past 30 years
  • In the last decade five Stradbroke champions jumped from double figure barriers meaning an inside draw over the 1400m at Eagle Farm isn’t necessarily advantageous
  • Two of those winners from wider gates had the extreme outside barrier (17 and 18) so don’t discount the runner that draws the ‘visitor’s barriers’ in 2013
  • The most successful Stradbroke Handicap barrier (since 1983) in fact has been barrier 18 with four victories, most recently in 2006 with La Montagna
  • The next best barriers statistically with three winners each in that time are then 3, 4, 6 and 12
  • In the past 10 years the most successful barrier has been gate 12 with two winners in Black Piranha (2009) and Sniper’s Bullet (2007)
  • Four barriers are yet to produce a winner with 2, 13, 15 and 16 all considered the “hoodoo” gates of the past three decades
  • The next worst barriers to draw with just one winner in the past 30 years are then 8, 10, 11 and 17

Make sure to bookmark this page and come back following the official 2013 Stradbroke Handicap barriers so you know which horses to sack and which to back in the bookmaker.com.au markets.

Current Stradbroke Handicap betting markets are led by Peter Snowden’s Doomben 10,000 winner Epaulette ($4.60).

In a tight affair three horses are then on the second line at $5.50 with the Kelly Schweida-trained Better Than Ready, Queensland Guineas winner from last Saturday Sizzling and Anthony Cummings’ BTC Cup champ Your Song.

How these top fancies draw tomorrow morning is sure to affect the Stradbroke Handicap odds so stay tuned.
