Eagle Farm Cup History

First held in 1887, the first recorded winner of the Eagle Farm Cup (known as the PJ O’Shea Stakes prior until 2010) was Russia in 1947. Over the years, the race has been known by several names including the Royal Stakes, Queen’s Plate and King’s Plate. There have been few double winners of this event which proves just how difficult the race is. Redcraze (1956-57), Tulloch (1960-61), Roman Consul (1969-70) and Scenic Shot (2008-09) have been the only double winners of the event.
