Doomben Roses History

By normal horse racing standards the Doomben Roses is a relatively new race. Established in 1996, the Doomben Roses has grown rapidly in prominence, achieving Group 3 status within 9 years (1996) and Group 2 status in 18 years (2014).

From 2010 onwards the race has been known simply as The Roses, however it is still commonly referred to as the Doomben Roses. While ever it remains at Doomben that is likely to be the case, however 2014’s carnival shake-up and the increased prominence of The Championships in Sydney might force a change to Eagle Farm racecourse, which shares the Brisbane Racing Carnival with Doomben.

The Doomben Roses was initially raced over 1625m, dropping back to 1615m in 1997, and then remaining at a steady 2020m from 1998 until 2011. Since 2012 the race has been 2000m.

Many horses who race in the Doomben Roses go on to compete in the Queensland Oaks (2400m), the premier staying event for fillies in Queensland. Only two fillies have won the Doomben Roses-Queensland Oaks double; Ethereal (2001) and Scarlett Lady (2011).

Two trainers, Roger James and Graeme Rogerson, have entered winning contestants into the Doomben Roses twice.
