Preview Of The 2010 Grand Prix Stakes

May 18th, 2010

As the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival gets into full swing, the stunning Eagle Farm Racecourse is gearing up to hold one of the more anticipated days of racing in the city as the Treasury Casino QLD Day on the 5th of June.

While the illustrious $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) headlines the day’s proceedings, the Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes (2100m) is always exciting.

A handicap for three-year-olds, the 2010 Grand Prix Stakes will once again draw a quality line up of local horses.

A handicap for three-year-olds, the 2010 Grand Prix Stakes will once again draw a quality line up of local horses all vying for a share in the $125,000 prize money.

In the lead up to the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) held a week later, Definite Choice may well use the 2010 Grand Prix Stakes as a stepping stone, and therefore be one to watch.

Another colt who may take the same path is Tee Emar trained by Peter Moody.

The three-year-old colt recently finished second to The Hombre in the Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2020m), and will look to finish ahead of the John Barry-trained gelding at Eagle Farm.

Also taking place on the 5th of June alongside the 2010 Grand Prix Stakes will be the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m), the Group 2 PJ O’Shea Stakes (2200m) and the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m).
