Winners and Past Results for the Brisbane Cup.

The Brisbane Cup hosted by the Brisbane Racing Club at the Eagle Farm Racecourse is a premier Group 2 open race run under handicap conditions.

The event is for horses three years old upwards which attracts some of the finest stayers over a distance of 2400 meters.

The hotly contested race is held in June during the winter racing carnival as one of the major features of the season. The Brisbane Cup offers prize money worth $300,000 which has been won by some of the most notable stayers in Australian race history including Carbine in 1875 and Desert Chill in 1995 and 1997.

The Brisbane Cup has a rich history with the first race won by Forester in 1866.

Horses that scored a double include Zanco in 1872 and 1874, Fitz Grafton with back to back victories in 1904-05, Spear Chief in 1938-39, and Fair Patton in 1964-65. The race was also won by the mighty Tulloch in 1964, also regarded as one of three finest horses in Australian racing history.

The race was a principal race until 1979 after which it was elevated to Group 1 in 1980. Love Bandit was the first horse to win the Brisbane Cup as a Group 1 race. Jockey Chris Munce made winning a habit with three victories, two on Desert Hill in 1995-97, and Grooming in 1992.

Horses formerly covered a distance of 3200 meters, which was later reduced to 2400 meters since 2007 along with a change in status to Group 2.

Champion trainer, the late TJ Smith has five Brisbane Cups to his credit.

Incidentally, the race is run on the same day as the Group 1 TJ Smith, Queensland Derby, and Stradbroke Handicap.

Prior to 2009, the race was held on the Queen's birthday holiday. Among the major races leading up to the Brisbane Cup are the Group 2 PJ O'Shea Stakes and Group 1 Doomben Cup. Scenic Shot romped home to victory in all the three events in 2009, which ought to be an eye opener for punters looking to double their fortunes at Eagle Farm.

Tullamore, the 2011 winner of the Brisbane Cup, ran an impressive second in the Winter Cup at Rosehill. The six million dollar prize money earner, Viewed, trained by Bart Cummings and winner of the 2008 Brisbane Cup went on to win the Group 1 Melbourne Cup in spring. The wily racehorse sadly succumbed to a twisted bowel in April 2010, ending what could have been a glorious career on the race tracks.
