The Doomben 10,000 is a Group 1 weight-for-age race held during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival in May each year. It was previously raced over a middle distance sprint of 1350m, but from 2017 it has been contested over 1200m and kicks off Group 1 racing in Queensland for the season.

Offering a lucrative $700,000 in prize money, The Doomben 10,000 is one of Queensland’s richest races and the weight-for-age event is now held two weeks before the Group 1 BTC Cup (1300m) – now known as the Darley Kingsford Smith Cup.

The Group 1 BTC Cup, previously run a fortnight before, was the best lead up race to the Doomben 10,000 and prior to the scheduled Brisbane Winter Carnival race changes in 2017 the last horse to do the double was Sea Siren (2012).

The new key Doomben 10,000 lead-up race is the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) run over the same distance also at weight-for-age two weeks before.

The 2019 Doomben 10,000 ran on Saturday May 11, 2019 and was won by visiting Kiwi galloper The Bostonian in a $41 upset.

The race is now held a fortnight earlier as the first Group 1 of the winter in Queensland and will likely be the carnival kick-off for many horses. Gallopers may also now come into the Doomben 10,000 race field via a Victory Stakes run a fortnight earlier in Brisbane.

The official Doomben 10,000 field 2019 and barriers are set for release on the Wednesday of race week and will be published below as soon as announced by Racing Queensland.

The early Doomben 10,000 race nominations for 2019 will be announced below after entries for the weight-for-age sprint are released on the Tuesday before race week.

Doomben 10,000 History

First won by Wallen in 1933, the race was originally named the T. M Ahearn Memorial however the name was changed when 10,000 pounds became the set amount of prize money. At this time, the Doomben 10,000 was the richest sprint race in Australia. The event was also won by the magnificent Manikato in 1979.

Originally a 6 furlong (approx 1200m) race, the distance for the Doomben 10,000 was changed to 7 furlongs (1400m) in 1942 and remained so until 1973 when it became a 1350m race.

The Doomben 10,000 race distance dropped back to the 1200m sprint in 2017 and the weight-for-age race moved forward a fortnight so it now marks the start of Group 1 racing in Brisbane over the winter.

Star Sydney sprinter Redzel (2017) won the first 1200m edition of the rescheduled Doomben 10,000 before his The Everest – Darley Classic double that spring.
