Azkadellia could lose Group 1 win

High profile mare Azkadellia’s racetrack performances are in danger of being nullified and this could include her win in the Group 1 $1m Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick during the 2016 Sydney Autumn Carnival.

The 2016 Doomben 10,000 is a sprint race run over 1,350 metres and held at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane in May each year.

The race was initially named the T.M. Ahearn Memorial, however it had its name changed to Doomben 10,000 after the £10,000 prize money was offered. At the time the Doomben 10,000 was the richest sprint race in Australia. Presently the Doomben 10,000 is worth $750,000.

The Doomben 10,000 is run under weight-for-age conditions and is run by the Brisbane Racing Club. The race first began in 1933 when it was run over six furlongs (approx 1200m) and was won by Wallen. The Doomben 10,000 was then changed to a distance of seven furlongs (approx 1400m) in 1942 before it was changed to today’s distance of 1,350 metres in 1973.

A good lead up race to the Doomben 10,000 is the Group 1 BTC Cup which is held a fortnight beforehand at Doomben Racecourse. After the Doomben 10,000, many horses will go on to contest the major event of the Brisbane Winter carnival, The Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap, two weeks later.

Horses to have won the Doomben 10,000 more than once include Black Onyx (1969-70), Prince Trialia (1990-91), Falvelon (2001-02) and Apache Cat (2008-09). Other notable winners of the Doomben 10,000 include Baguette (1971), Manikato (1979), Chief De Beers (1995), Takeover Target (2007) and Hot Danish (2010).
