The Group 2 Dane Ripper Quality, now known as the Dane Ripper Stakes, is one of the feature races traditionally held on Stradbroke Handicap Day at Eagle Farm Racecourse during the annual Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Conducted on a Saturday in early-mid June, the 1300m (as of 2021) set weights plus penalties showdown for fillies and mares is worth $200,000 in prize money and is one of a host of Group support acts on the richest race day of the carnival.

Note: Due to COVID-19 the rescheduled Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival saw the Dane Ripper Stakes take place on the Saturday after the Stradbroke Handicap and offer a reduced $175,000 in prize money. It was also run as a weight-for-age event instead of set weights plus penalties with no edition of the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara taking place in 2020.

The meeting is headlined by the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap and the Group 1 J.J. Atkins. The Dane Ripper Stakes meanwhile is one of three Group 2 races on the program along with the Brisbane Cup for the stayers and a new feature event – the $1.2 million The Q22 (2200m).

A nice lead-up race to the Dane Ripper Stakes was previously the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1300m) at Eagle Farm a fortnight earlier – which is now run as the Group 3 Queensland Sapphire Stakes over a mile the weekend before – while contenders may also come out of races like the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide.

Fillies & mares that run well in the Dane Ripper Stakes usually back-up at the end of the month in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), which is the last major race of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival. The Dane Ripper Stakes – Tattersall’s Tiara has been achieved in recent years by Red Tracer (2013), Cosmic Endeavour (2014) and Invincibella (2019) who also won the 2018 edition of the Dane Ripper Stakes.

The 2021 Dane Ripper Stakes runs on Saturday June 12, 2021.

Dane Ripper Stakes History

Inaugurated in 2003, the Dane Ripper Stakes was originally a Listed race.

The high class of mainly locally-trained fillies and mares attracted to the winter feature however saw it gain Group 3 status in 2006.

Three years later in 2009 the event, named in honour of champion 1997 Cox Plate winner Dane Ripper who was prepared by Bart Cummings, became a Group 2 feature and since then has continued to draw quality fields. In 2017 the race took place over 1350m at Doomben with Eagle Farm not declared fit for racing.

Red Tracer (2012-13) became the first two-time Dane Ripper Stakes winner, a feat repeated later by the also Chris Waller-trained Invincibella (2018-19).

In 2020 the race was contested at weight-for-age earlier in the carnival due to COVID-19 and was won in an upset by 40/1 shot Love You Lucy.

The distance was back down to 1300m in 2021.
