The Grand Prix Stakes was first run in 1974 and is the ideal lead up race for three-year-olds planning to contest the Queensland Derby over 2400m later in the carnival at Eagle Farm racecourse. The set weight & penalty conditions of this race favours the better horses entered for the event.
The most recent Grand Prix Stakes & Queensland Derby double winners have been Hawkspur (2013), Brambles (2012), Ice Chariot (2006) & Half Hennessy (2003), and this race generally attracts handy gallopers rather then the elite. Kutchinsky (2010) finished runner-up in the Queensland Derby after winning the Grand Prix Stakes.
Of late, the Gr3 Rough Habit Plate has been a pivotal guide to this race with both Mackintosh (2016), Hawkspur (2013) and Brambles (2012) all taking out the Rough Habit Plate & Grand Prix Stakes double, with both Hawkspur and Brambles going on to win the Queensland Derby at their next start.
Fun Fact (2019) took out a 3YO BM68 race over 1600m at Warwick Farm in Sydney before heading north to Brisbane to win this event in stylish fashion fro the Bjorn Baker stable.
Recent Grand Prix Stakes winners include Heavenly Thought (2018) and Order Again (2017).
