Eagle Farm Racecourse is located in Brisbane’s North-East just under 8km’s from the CBD, it is owned and operated by Brisbane Racing Club. Eagle Farm is one of Australia’s largest and most premium racecourses, hosting a number of the biggest Australian Group 1 races on the horse racing calendar. The most prominent of which is the Stradbroke Handicap, the biggest day of the Queensland Winter Carnival with the largest prize pool, 1,250,000, in Queensland racing next to the Magic MIllions.
In 2014, Brisbane Race Club began a $10 million redevelopment project on Eagle Farm Racecourse which saw the relocation of the on-course training and stabling facilities to the infield, the first of its kind in the world, setting a new standard for elite racecourses. Brisbane Race Club sold the excess land which cemented long-term financial sustainability. The infield comprises 400 stables and training facilities, member’s car park, large format video board, maintenance facilities, vehicular and pedestrian tunnels, and a multi-purpose entry pavilion.
