Doomben 10,000 History

First won by Wallen in 1933, the race was originally named the T. M Ahearn Memorial however the name was changed when 10,000 pounds became the set amount of prize money. At this time, the Doomben 10,000 was the richest sprint race in Australia. The event was also won by the magnificent Manikato in 1979.

Originally a 6 furlong (approx 1200m) race, the distance for the Doomben 10,000 was changed to 7 furlongs (1400m) in 1942 and remained so until 1973 when it became a 1350m race.
