The Stradbroke Handicap was first run in 1890 and is the biggest race of the Brisbane winter carnival offering $1,000,000 in prizemoney to entrants. The Stradbroke was named after Lord Stradbroke who was a relative of Admiral Rous, an architect of the weight for age scale.

The race itself is one of the premier sprint races held in Australia and is one of the toughest 1400m handicaps on the racing calendar each year. The Stradbroke is a high pressure race that always attracts a capacity field of very talented gallopers and suits those horses who can run out a very strong 1400 metres. It is not a race for the feint hearted and strong milers are well suited in the Stradbroke.

Class gallopers such as Dane Ripper (1997), All Our Mob (1994) and Rough Habit (1991-92) have all won this race over the years and the Stradbroke is the most highly anticipated race of the Brisbane winter carnival that generally sees four-year-old gallopers run very well.

Races such as the Gr1 Doomben 10,000 at Doomben and the Gr2 QTC Cup at Eagle Farm are typical lead up races to the Stradbroke and Black Piranha (2009) ran second in the Doomben 10,000 prior to winning this event, while Ortensia (3rd in 2009) won the QTC Cup before her third placing in this race. Buffering (2nd in 2012) finished runner-up in both races.

The Doomben 10,000 has always been a great guide to the Stradbroke and in recent times Private Steer (2003), Show A Heart (2002), Adam (1999), All Our Mob (1994) and Rough Habit (1992) all finished runner-up in the Doomben 10,000 prior to winning this race.

Talented mare Melito (2nd in 2010) went on to win the premier mares race of the winter carnival, the Gr1 Winter Stakes, after finishing runner-up in the Stradbroke, while Streama (3rd in 2013) ran second in the Winter Stakes after running third in this race.

Linton (2013) won the Gr3 RA Lee Stakes over 1600m at Morphettville in Adelaide before making the trip to Brisbane to score in this event and recent Stradbroke Handicap winners include Mid Summer Music (2012) and Sincero (2011).
