The Doomben 10,000 is a Brisbane Racing Club Group 1 Thoroughbred Weight for Age horse race, run over a distance of 1200 metres at Doomben Racecourse, Brisbane, Australia during the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.[1] Total prize money is A$1,000,000. The race is considered one of the premier sprint races in Queensland racing.

History[edit]

The race was changed to the Doomben 10,000 after the £10,000 prize money on offer, which at the time was the richest sprint in Australia.
Notable sprinters to win the race are Chief De Beers (1995, 1998), Falvelon (2001-02), Prince Trialia in 1990–91, and Black Onyx in 1969–70.[1] Included in the list are former greats Bernborough in 1946 and Manikato in 1979.[1] Recently, champion sprinters Apache Cat and Takeover Target captured this race.[1] Sea Siren was the first three-year-old filly to win the race in 2012.[1]
