Race history[edit]

Mr Baritone - 2008 Winner

The race is named after Lord Stradbroke, relative to Henry John Rous, originator of the weight-for-age scale in thoroughbred racing.[2]

In 1890 the Stradbroke Handicap was a Principal race run over six furlongs (~1,200m), when it was won by Pyrrhus.

The distance was changed in 1953 to 7 furlongs and in 1972 to the current distance of 1,400 metres.

Five two-year-olds have won the race, the last was Wiggle, carrying 7 stone 5 pounds (~46.5 kg) in 1958.[3][4] The 1,400 metre race and track record is 1:20.2 established by Toledo in 1998.[5] Between 1982 and 1988 the race was known as the Elders Handicap.[5]
