The JJ Atkins is a Group l race and is the feature two year old race of the Brisbane Winter Carnival. It is held at Eagle Farm racecourse (Doomben this year) each year over 1600m and is a highlight of the Canrival.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $600,000 and is at Set Weights for two year olds.
The 2018 JJ Atkins will be run on Saturday the 9th of June, 2018 at Eagle Farm racecourse (Doomben this year).
The JJ Atkins is well placed for the locals, and it does take a very good horse from the South to get the job done. Recent winners include Press Statement, Almalad and Romantic Touch.
Favourites over the last ten years have got a tidy record, winning three times and placing on a further four occasions.
