DOOMBEN 10,000


Run over 1350m, the Doomben 10,000 is run at weight-for-age conditions. The 10,000 is the signature event of the 3 Group 1 races held at Doomben during the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

First held in 1933 as the Doomben Newmarket Handicap over 6 furlongs or approximately 1200m, the race changed to the Doomben 10,000 in 1947 and was once the richest sprint race in Australia when offering 10,000 pounds in prizemoney. The 2016 edition of the race will offer total prizemoney of $750,000 with the winner to receive $480,000.

Some greats of the turf have been successful in the race including the 2nd winner Lough Neagh, Bernborough, Aquanita, Manikato, Falvelon, Apache Cat and the King of Doomben Chief De Beers. The 2015 winner was the ill-fated Boban trained by Chris Waller and ridden by Glyn Schofield

AZKADELLIA

Favourite in the all-in market and now favourite in the final field, trainer Ciaron Maher will be hoping this mare can do what his recently retired star mare Srikandi could not, and win the 10,000 as the favourite. The 4YO mare has all the key attributes to take out the race, with the only query how she will handle the Doomben track at her 1st race appearance on the surface. Only missing a place once in her 14 start career, she has scored 2 wins from her 5 starts this preparation. Last time out she landed her maiden win at the elite level when taking out the G1 Queen of the Turf over 1600m at Randwick. That win followed a good 3rd behind the mighty Winx in the Doncaster Mile after settling at the tail shortly after the start. She has won twice over 1400m, including in the G3 Mannerism.

FELL SWOOP

The Matthew Dale trained runner will be much better suited this time after drawing gate 1and with the services of the Hong Kong based Zac Purton, who rode the 4YO into 2nd place in the G1 T J Smith behind Chautauqua at The Championships. In the G1 BTC Cup he worked overtime in the run, never getting on the track from his wide barrier and he was still whacking away at the finish, beaten under 2 lengths with the final 600m run in sub 34 seconds. His BTC Cup run followed his Doomben debut in the G2 Victory Stakes over 1200m. Taking a while to fully wind up, he knuckled down the final 100m to justify his short price favouritism and score a strong victory. With there looking to be an abundance of early speed, he should enjoy a great trail handy to the speed as he steps out beyond... read more The Matthew Dale trained runner will be much better suited this time after drawing gate 1and with the services of the Hong Kong based Zac Purton, who rode the 4YO into 2nd place in the G1 T J Smith behind Chautauqua at The Championships.

DOTHRAKI

On his 3rd Queensland Winter Racing Carnival pilgrimage, the Snowden trained galloper was heavily supported in the BTC Cup a fortnight back and the money was nearly spot-on. Settling in the front half of the field he was finishing strongly and had hit the front in the closing 75m, only for Malaguerra to kick back and take the narrowest of victories. His 4 runs this campaign have all been in G1 events and he lines up this week for the 3rd time at Doomben, his past 2 appearances being his 2nd in the BTC Cup and a 3rd in the 2014 G3 Fred Best. At his 2 runs in Sydney prior to heading to Queensland, he finished 3rd in the G1 The Galaxy when carrying 55kg and in the G1 T J Smith settled handy to the speed but was out-gunned by Chautauqua, finishing 3.5 lengths in 5th position.



THE ROUGHIE

THE ROUGHIE

MUSIC MAGNATE

Although not a genuine long priced roughie, this will be the G1 debut for Music Magnate who is on a campaign targeted at the Stradbroke. The Bjorn Baker stable is in great form at present and Music Magnate is on the rise, having only missed a placing once in his career. 1st up in the G3 Hall Mark Stakes over 1200m at Randwick he scored a narrow win, with his next outing a 1000m trial at Wyong where he scored a tidy win over Clearly Innocent. His only other start this prep was in the Listed Luskin Star at Scone carrying 57.5kg. After leading he faced some mild mid-race pressure but was left a sitting shot in front on the long Scone straight and Clearly Innocent finished strongly, landing a 1 length win. Kerrin McEvoy rode her at Scone and keeps the ride for this.
