Stradbroke Handicap: Eagle Farm 1400m
|Sat 15 Jun 2024
The Stradbroke Handicap is Brisbane’s most famous race, capturing the hearts of racing enthusiasts in Queensland for well over a century. Known for its rich history, thrilling finishes, and captivating atmosphere, this iconic event has become one of the most anticipated fixtures on the Australian racing calendar.
Melbourne has the Cup. Sydney has the Slipper. Brisbane has the Straddy.
Like many of Australia’s Group 1 handicaps, particularly over the shorter distances, it can often be suited to a younger horse on the rise, who can get in with a lighter weight but is still improving with every start. The 2023 winner Think About It is a classic example.
