The 2017 Doomben Cup is a Group 1 race that is run at Doomben Racecourse in May of each year. Run as part of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, the Doomben Cup is run under weight-for-age conditions and is worth a total of [cf prize_money] in prize money. Contested over a stayer’s distance of 2,000 metres, the Doomben Cup is the premier distance event of the year at Doomben Racecourse.

Many horses go to the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) two weeks earlier at the Gold Coast before they take on the Doomben Cup, and this race is often the best guide when it comes to expected Doomben Cup form. Rough Habit (1991-92), Durbridge (1994), Danewin (1995), Might And Power (1998), Mr Bureaucrat (2002), Above Deck (2006) and Metal Bender (2010) are included in the horses to have won the Hollindale Stakes and Doomben Cup double. Punters can bet on The Doomben Cup or any other major racing event with the top brands featured on Freebets.com.au.

The first running of the Doomben Cup took place back in 1933 when it was won by a horse called Pentheus. The race was first held over a distance of 10 furlongs (2000m) until 1938 when it was moved up in distance to 11 furlongs (2200m). It was then held over 2,200 metres until 1989 when it was held over 2,160 metres. The Doomben Cup was finally changed to today’s distance of 2,000 metres in 1990.

While a number of horses have claimed back to back wins of the Doomben Cup over the years, only one horse has won the race three years in a row. The horse Rough Habit won the race on three consecutive occasions from 1991-1993. Other notable horses to have won the Doomben Cup are Bernborough (1946), Earlwood (1959-60), Bore Head (1967), Juggler (1996), Bush Padre (2003), Sarrera (2008), Scenic Shot (2009, 2011) and Metal Bender (2010).
