More Details About The Stradbroke Handicap

Horses travel over 1350 metres of Eagle Farm Racecourse on what is considered the biggest day of the winter racing carnival.

The high-pressure race worth $1.5 million dollars attracts a field of above average sprinters setting the pace for the season ahead. The Group 1 TJ Smith for two-year-olds and Group 1 Queensland Derby are also on the day's card.

The race is held in honour of Lord Stradbroke and is considered the toughest handicap over 1400 metres among premier sprint races.

Talented gallopers and horses with the ability to conquer the mile usually come out on top in the Stradbroke Handicap. Four year olds that come under the starter's orders are known to figure at the top. The Group 1 Doomben 10,000 at Doomben Racecourse can prove to be a handy form guide for the Stradbroke Handicap. Horses may also contest the Group 2 QTC Cup at Eagle Farm on their way to the event.

The Stradbroke Handicap was first run as a principal race way back in 1890 and was promoted to Group 1 in 1980. Several horses have two consecutive titles to their credit in earlier times while Dane Ripper in 1997, Toledo in 1998, Show A Heart in 2002, Thorn Park in 2004, Sniper's Bullet in 2007, and Mr. Baritone in 2008 are among the notable winners in recent times.

Rough Habit and Campaign King are the only two top-weights to win the Stradbroke Handicap over the past two decades, carrying 58.5 kg each. Trainer Bart Cummings holds the distinction of maximum winners with four titles to his credit.

2022 Stradbroke Handicap Build Up, Result and Recap

The 2022 Stradbroke Handicap was won by Alligator Blood who was trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott. Alligator Blood won the 2022 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm when beating home Private Eye and Rothfire in a winning time of one minute and twenty one seconds.

The Build Up To The 2022 Stradbroke Handicap

In the lead up to the 2022 Stradbroke Handicap the market was wide open with the favourite for the race, Eleven Eleven sitting as the market leader at $6.50. The Fastnet Rock gelding had come into the race having finished third in the Group One Kingsford Smith Cup and was expected to go well again in the Stradbroke.

Other contenders for the 2022 edition of the Stradbroke Handicap included Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr trained Ayrton. The lightly raced four year old had a poor showing in the Hollindale at the start of the Winter Carnival so was a late entry straight into the Stradbroke. The stable were expecting a much better showing with Ayrton sat second in the betting at $8.

On the third line of betting and the only other runner in single figures in the market was Tony Gollan trained Isotope. Gollan had seen stablemate Baller break through last week for a victory in black type racing and was pinning hopes of Isotope copying suit as a $9 chance for the Stradbroke.

Elsewhere there was the likes of Rothfire, Alligator Blood and Apache Chase around the $11 mark. All had been in good form coming into the race having won at the highest level previously however consistency in backing up performances had them in double figures in betting.

The other interesting entrant to the race was Annabel Neasham trained Law of Indicies who had begun his career in France before being brought to Australia earlier in the season. With Neasham taking out the Q22 with The Numerian earlier on the card Stradbroke punters weren’t taking any chances with the NSW conditioners latest runner.

2022 Stradbroke Handicap Race Recap

An 18 strong line up formed the starting field for the Group One Stradbroke Handicap which took place at Eagle Farm on Saturday 11th June. The race favourite was Gregory Hickman trained Eleven Eleven who led the market as a $6.50 favourite.

With the field loaded quickly at Eagle Farm the gates crashed back on time to mark the start of the 2022 Stradbroke Handicap. Private Eye was away well from the inside barrier whilst Rothfire was forced to do a lot of work early from gate 16 before quickly taking up the running of the Eagle Farm feature.

As the field began to settle it would be Rothfire who would continue to work and take up the sole running at the front of the field. Rothfire was accompanied by stablemate and fellow Rob Heathcote runner Emerald Kingdom with Law of Indicies and Isotope tracking the leading pair.

At the 600m marker Rothfire took his foot of the accelerator to steady for one last push causing the field to bunch behind him with a number of runners peeling wide looking for runs. In particular Isotope, Ayrton and Private Eye traveled into the race well.

Around the home turn though the returning Rothfire, who was having his third start since his season ending injury kicked for home and was able to find another few lengths on a toiling Stradbroke Handicap field.

It would be Alligator Blood however who would find the widest run under the ride of Tim Clark who would produce a powerful run late to win the $1.5m feature. Alligator Blood appeared to have plenty in the tank when winning a clear two length lead and despite a flashing Private Eye late Alligator Blood was to good winning the 2022 Stradbroke Handicap.
