RQ has decided to transfer the remaining BRC Racing Carnival to Doomben

Racing Queensland (RQ) has decided to transfer the remaining BRC Racing Carnival race days to Doomben, in light of the track performance at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Have Your Say: Is this the correct decision? – Leave a comment below.

The decision was made after consultation with industry associations and some of the nation’s leading participants in order to present the best possible surface for Group 1 racing in Queensland.

Earlier today, RQ announced the BRC’s Queensland Oaks meeting on June 3 would be transferred to Doomben.

After further consultation with the club and other stakeholders RQ also decided to transfer The Stradbroke Handicap to Doomben scheduled for Saturday, June 10.

RQ CEO Dr Eliot Forbes said Doomben offered a more suitable surface than Eagle Farm for Group 1 racing at this stage.

“The consensus from the feedback was that while Eagle Farm was safe for racing, it is an inferior racing surface,” Dr Forbes said.

“Racing Queensland is committed to providing outcomes that are in the best interests of the industry as a whole and that includes a racing surface befitting the quality of the horses and races being contested.

“Eagle Farm and Doomben are premier venues for racing in Queensland and we want to ensure the racing experience at both is consistent with that standard.

“This has not been an easy decision. However, the Board has taken into account feedback from all stakeholders and we are united in wanting the best outcomes for the industry as a whole.”

Dr Forbes said RQ will be working closely with the BRC over the coming weeks to ensure an enduring solution is identified to remediate the Eagle Farm track.
