The The TJ Smith is a Group 1 race for two-year-olds that is held annually each June at Eagle Farm racecourse in Brisbane, Queensland. The race is run over a distance of 1600 metres and worth $600,000 in prizemoney. The 2016 The TJ Smith was won by Sacred Elixir from Charnley River with Heart Skipt A Beat third.

Run as the 'JJ Atkins Stakes' in recent times, this race takes place on Stradbroke Day at Eagle Farm's major race meeting of the year, alongside the Gr 1 Stradbroke Handicap and Gr1 Queensland Derby.

2017 The TJ Smith info
Date: Saturday 10th June 2017
Track: Eagle Farm racecourse, Brisbane
Distance: 1600 metres
Race Type: 2yo - Set Weights
Status: Group 1
Prizemoney: $600,000
2016 Winner: Sacred Elixir

The TJ Smith is named after legendary Sydney trainer Tommy Smith and the race has grown to become an elite race for two-year-olds during the Brisbane winter carnival. It is the final group race of the carnival for 2yo gallopers and the Gr2 Sires Produce Stakes held earlier in the carnival at the same track is the best guide to this event.

Two-year-olds may also tackle the Gr2 Champagne Classic the previous month on their way to this race and both Sizzling (2012) and Pressday (2010) have managed to take out the feature 2yo treble by winning the Champagne Classic, Sires Produce Stakes and The TJ Smith Stakes in succession.

Recent two-year-olds to win the Sires Produce Stakes & The TJ Smith double include Sizzling (2012), Pressday (2010), Lovely Jubly (2002), Juanmo (2001), Al Mansour (1997), Anthems (1996), Mahogany (1993) and Slight Chance (1992).

More often than not, winners of this race will go on to bigger and better things in their career and it's worth noting that Shoot Out (7th in 2009) ran seventh in this race before going on to win the Gr1 AJC Derby the following autumn in Sydney, while Pressday (2010) ventured to Melbourne the following spring to claim the Gr2 Sandown Guineas at Sandown.

Sacred Elixir (2016) ran sixth in the Sires Produce Stakes over 1350m at Doomben prior to winning this event in easy fashion and recent The TJ Smith winners include Press Statement (2015) and Almalad (2014).
