The Doomben 10000 is a Group 1 weight-for-age race held each May at Doomben racecourse in Brisbane, Queensland. The race is run over a distance of 1350 metres and worth $750,000 in prizemoney. The 2016 Doomben 10000 was won by Music Magnate from Azkadellia with Charlie Boy third.
Held on the final and major race day of the Doomben racing carnival in Brisbane, Doomben 10,000 day features a number of quality group races including the Gr3 Grand Prix Stakes for three-year-olds.
The Doomben 10000 is the premier sprint event of the winter carnival at Doomben and always attracts a good class field. The race is typically taken out by a more than handy galloper and the weight-for-age conditions of the race lends itself to the better performed horses entered.
The Gr1 BTC Cup held two weeks earlier at the same track has been a good guide in recent years, with Apache Cat (2008) taking out the BTC Cup & Doomben 10000 double in the same year, and in 2009 he finished second in the BTC Cup before scoring in this event for the second year in a row. Takeover Target (2007) finished second in the BTC Cup before winning this race at his next start.
The honour roll for this event sees many of Australia's best sprinters name etched upon it, with horses such as Apache Cat (2008-09), Takeover Target (2007), Bel Esprit (2003), Falvelon (2001-02) and Chief De Beers twice in 1995 & 1998, being winners of this race.
Classy gallopers Sea Siren (2012) and Buffering (2nd in 2012) returned the following year to fill second and third place behind Epaulette (2013).
Many horses from this race will go on and tackle the major sprint race of the Brisbane winter carnival, the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap, held two weeks later at Eagle Farm, and the Ciaron Maher trained Srikandi (6th in 2015) won the Stradbroke after running sixth in this race. In recent years Black Piranha (2nd in 2009) claimed the Stradbroke after finishing runner-up in the Doomben 10,000, while Beaded (2nd in 2011) & Buffering (2nd in 2012) managed to run second in the Stradbroke as well.
Talented mare Melito (3rd in 2010) ran placings in both the BTC Cup & Doomben 10000 and then went on to run second in the Stradbroke Handicap at her next start, before winning the premier mares race of the winter carnival, the Gr1 Winter Stakes, on the last day of the winter carnival at Eagle Farm.
Music Magnate (2016) finished runner-up in the listed Luskin Star Stakes over 1300m at Scone in country New South Wales before making his way to Brisbane to win this event and recent Doomben 10,000 winners include Boban (2015) and Spirit Of Boom (2014).
