The inaugural running of the Stradbroke Handicap took place back in 1890 and was named after Lord Stradbroke who was a relative of Admiral Rous who himself was a creator of the weight-for-age scale. The Stradbroke Handicap is one of the toughest 1,400 metre handicap races in Australia and it consistently attracts a full capacity quality field. Racehorses who are strong milers traditionally perform the best in the Stradbroke Handicap.

The Stradbroke Handicap was first run over a distance of six furlongs (1200m) when it was won by Pyrrhus. The distance then increased to today’s 1,400 metres in 1953. Over the years, four-year-old horses have generally dominated the race, while one two-year-old, Wiggle, won the race back in 1958 carrying 46.5 kilograms. The Stradbroke Handicap was not held for four years from 1942-1945 due to the Second World War.

The Group 1 Doomben 10,000 and the Group 2 QTC Cup are often avenues potential Stradbroke Handicap runners choose to take on their way to the big race. Rough Habit (1992), All Our Mob (1994), Adam (1999), Show A Heat (2002) and Private Steer (2003) all finished runner-up in the Doomben 10,000 before claiming victory in the prestigious Stradbroke Handicap. Toledo (1998) holds the record for the fastest winning time in the Stradbroke Handicap, passing the post in just 1 minute and 20.2 seconds.

Notable winners of the Stradbroke Handicap include Gold Tie (1921-22), Highland (1927-28), Triton (1972), Grey Receiver (1982), Thorn Park (2004), Sniper’s Bullet (2007) and Black Piranha (2009-10).
