BRC Sprint

The BRC Sprint is a Group 3 race run on Doomben Cup Day in May during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival as a possible Stradbroke Handicap lead-up.

The BRC Sprint is a Group 3 race held each year at Doomben Racecourse during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on a Saturday in late May as part of Doomben Cup Day.

Run over a distance of 1350m, the BRC Sprint is an option both for horses that excel at shorter sprints as well as mile runners. With a total purse of $125,000 ($76,250 to the victor), the BRC Sprint is a good early lead-up for gallopers heading towards the Group 1 $1.5 million Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm the following month. In recent years the Stradbroke Handicap has been run over the same track / distance as the BRC Sprint due to the unsuitable racing surface at Eagle Farm.

Known as the BTC Sprint up until 2009, the race was renamed to reflect the new Brisbane Racing Club, the result of an amalgamation of the Brisbane Turf Club and Queensland Turf Club. The BRC Sprint runs alongside the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) and a number of other black-type winter races.

BRC Sprint History

Following the merger of the Queensland Turf Club and the Brisbane Turf Club in 2009, the BTC Sprint became known as the BRC Sprint. First run in 1985, the race is old enough to have a solid reputation while still being relatively young. The BRC Sprint was a listed race for its first decade, upgrading to Group 3 for the 1996 edition and remaining at that grade since. Two trainers share the record for most races won, at two wins each: Walter Doolan and John Morish.

The fastest time around the BRC Sprint was made by Chief De Beers in 1998, at 1:17.5. Incidentally, Chief De Beers won 20 out of his 51 races, and he never won away from Doomben Racecourse.

The BRC Sprint was first run in 1985, when Final Affair seized a solid victory. BRC Sprint results since 2000 are below.
