The 2017 Tattersall’s Tiara, previously known as the Winter Stakes, wraps up the tailend of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. It is the last Group 1 race for the season in Queensland and usually occurs the weekend following the Ipswich Cup. Open only to fillies and mares and run under weight for age conditions, the Tattersall’s Tiara field attracts talented female horses from all around Queensland. Interstate horses often make the journey, ensuring top level competition over the 1400 metre length of the race.
With $500,000 prize money on offer, the Tattersall’s Tiara is a lucrative race to finish off the season. It’s not a standalone black type race either. Also on the race card are two Group 3 races, the $175,000 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) and the $200,000 Tattersall’s Cup (2200m). Two listed races are also held on the day, making for a top day of racing and punting to see out the carnival.
The 2017 Tattersall’s Tiara will be run on Saturday June 24, 2017.

Tattersall’s Tiara History
The inaugural edition of the Tattersall’s Tiara was in 1989, when it was known as the Winter Stakes. La Posette took out the first edition of a race that was to become famous in its own right. While it is a weight for age race, only one horse has ever seen victory twice; Bonanova won consecutive victories in 1999 and 2000.
The Tattersall’s Tiara was upgraded to a listed race in 1992, a status it held until the 1996 edition, which was ran as a Group 3 race. A decade later in 2006, the race was upgraded further to Group 2. The Tattersall’s Tiara received its Group 1 status in 2007. In 2011, the race name was officially changed from the Winter Stakes to the Tattersall’s Tiara.
The race distance has also changed over time as well. From its inception until 2006 the Tattersall’s Tiara was run over 1500m. With the upgrade to Group 1 came a change in distance, and since 2007 the race has been run over 1400m.
Several notable horses have won the Tattersall’s Tiara including Dane Ripper (1997), Melito (2010), Red Tracer (2013) and Srikandi (2015).
