Winners and Past Results for the WJ Healy Stakes.

Hosted by Tattersalls Racing Club, the WJ Healy Stakes is a Group 3 quality handicap race held over 1200 metres of Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane in June.

The quality sprint race attracts prize money worth $175,000 for the winning connections, which is often taken home by a more than handy local sprinter who may be around at that time of the season.

The WJ Healy Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 Tattersall's Tiara (Winter Stakes) and Group 3 Tattersall's Cup, which is the final day of the Eagle Farm winter racing carnival.

The 1350m Group 3 BRC Sprint at Doomben Racecourse held earlier in May is one of the likely warm up events while some horses may come via the Group 2 QTC Cup held a fortnight earlier at Eagle Farm over an extended distance of 1300m.

One of the classy sprinters to win the WJ Healy Stakes convincingly in recent times was Hay List in 2010 who won by a margin of 5 lengths from Pinwheel. Other notable runners include Sublimate in 1994 while Quality Kingdom won 1998 and Super Elegant in 2003. Runner up in 2005, Takeover Target is also among the classy gallopers to pass through the WJ Healy Stakes. The race hasn't been a handy form guide for follow up races in recent times where some horses may even head for a spell.

The WJ Healy Stakes was first won by Painted Red in 1979. It remained a listed race until it was promoted to Group 3 in 1997 with Blazing Reality recorded as the first Group winner. It was also held as the Tatt's QLD Mercedes Benz Stakes and the Tatt's QLD Carlton Draught Stakes. However, it is known as the WJ Healy Stakes since 2006.
