More Details About The Doomben 10,000 Stakes
The Group 1 event is held at the Doomben Racetrack in Brisbane with horses taking advantage of the weight for age conditions over 1350 meters.
The race has witnessed some of the classiest sprinters bag prize money worth $1,000,000.
Included in the race card on the day of the Doomben 10,000 is the Group 3 Premier's Cup and Grand Prix Stakes. The event suits better performing sprinters with many making their way from the Group 1 BTC Cup held a fortnight earlier on the same track. Recent winners of the BTC Cup/Doomben 10,000 double include Apache Cat in 2008 who almost repeated the feat in 2009. While he won the Doomben 10,000 for the second year in a row, the wily sprinter finished second in the BTC Cup. Earlier in 2007, Takeover Target was runner up in the BTC Cup before beating Gold Edition to the post in the Doomben 10,000.
Other notable sprinters to win the Doomben 10,000 are Chief De Beers in 1995-98, Falvelon in 2001-02, Prince Triala in 1990-91, and Black Onyx in 1969-70. Included in the list are Bernborough in 1946, Manikato in 1979, and Bel Esprit in 2003. Among the major sprint races that successful horses may fancy their chances after the Doomben 10,000 are the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap and the Winter Stakes at Eagle Farm. Runner up in 2009, Black Piranha scored a convincing win in the Stradbroke Handicap. Melito placed well in the BTC Cup, Doomben 10,000 and Stradbroke Handicap before storming the tracks in the Group 1 Winter Stakes.
The Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes at Morphettville in Adelaide is a warm up even for horses heading for the Doomben 10,000. 2011 champion, Beaded, was runner up in Sangster Stakes before winning the Doomben 10,000.
Interestingly, no filly has stamped their authority on the race while only five mares have crossed the finishing post first since its inception. Punters may note that only four favourites have obliged in the past two decades. Jockey Corey Brown steered two horses to victory in the Doomben 10,000, which were Apache Cat in 2008 and Beaded in 2011. Prior to winning the 2010 Doomben 10,000, Hot Danish won the Group 1 All Aged Stakes over 1400 meters at Randwick and then continued her fine form in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes over 1200 meters at Rosehill in September and the Group 2 Lexus Stakes in October.
The Doomben 10,000 originally named the Doomben Newmarket Handicap and then later the TM Ahearn Memorial but in mid 1940 was changed to its current name with the 10,000 pounds prize money at that time making it the richest sprint race in Australia.
2022 Doomben 10,000 Details, Result and Recap
The 2022 Doomben 10,000 was won by Mazu who was trained by Peter and Paul Snowden and won the Doomben 10,000 when beating home Godolphin trained Paulele and Kiwi racer Entriviere. Mazu won the 2022 Doomben 10,000 in a time of 1 minute and 12seconds.
2022 Doomben 10,000 Lead Up
The build up to the 2022 Doomben 10,000 was all focussed on the returning Rothfire and his surprise entry to a race he was so unlikely to feature the bookmakers didn’t even have a price for him in the markets.
Rothfire had been expected to bypass the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 in favour of the Group One Stradbroke Handicap or Group One Kingsford Smith Cup. Instead trainer Robert Heathcote had elected to race Rothfire in the 2022 Doomben 10,000 if the race was relocated to Eagle Farm.
The Doomben 10,000 had been scheduled to take place at it’s traditional home Doomben racecourse, however torrential rain had meant that flooding on the heavy Doomben track meant that the race needed to be relocated to the nearby Eagle Farm track where recent track upgrades had provided better drainage.
Another point of focus on the lead up to the Doomben 10,000 was that of Peter and Paul Snowden trained Mazu who had risen from BM 78 grade to black type winner in a matter of weeks whilst also putting together a strong unbeaten run.
On the build up to the Doomben 10,000 Mazu had won the Listed Fireball Stakes and Group Two 3yo Arrowfield Sprint at Royal Randwick as well as the Listed Darby Munro Stakes at Rosehill Gardens.
As a result of his recent performances Mazu had been favourite to win the 2022 Doomben 10,000 with him leading the market at $3.30. Mazu led the way from Godolphin-trained Kementari at $6.50 and Kiwi raider Etriviere.

2022 Doomben 10,000 Race Recap
The Group One Doomben 10,000 was moved from it’s initial billing of the 14th May at Doomben racecourse to the nearby Eagle Farm track because of the issues with drainage which meant the Doomben surface was un-raceable.
This meant that punters were looking for the mudlarks and strong form-lines around the heavy tracks that Sydney’s Autumn Racing Carnival had thrown up. With the Rosehill track and Randwick track both playing in the heavy range through the period.
As the gates opened there was a frantic and fast-paced start while jockeys manoeuvred their Doomben 10,000 runners into position. Working early form the wide gate Zoustyle pushed forward and took up the running from Generation piloted by Jamie Kah.
Race favourite Mazu settling in fourth position while Zoustyle kicked on to lead the race and looking likely to over race early on. Once the field settled there was little positional change until the final bend where runners began to peel wide and jockey for position.
Rothfire traveled strongly in front and had every chance heading into the home straight when deciding on a rails run under Jockey James Orman. Outside of Rothfire, Mazu and wider Paulele began to get to work and when hitting the home straight quickly moved back Zoustyle who was floundering after working early in the race.
Despite a late lunge from Paulele, Mazu was able to fend off the late challenges from the Godolphin runner and the fast finishing Entriviere who came flying late out of the pack. The 2022 Doomben 10,000 was to be won by Mazu who won $600,000 in prize money from the race.
