The Gunsynd Classic is a Group 3 race for three-year-olds held annually each year in April at Eagle Farm racecourse in Brisbane, Queensland during the winter racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1600 metres and is worth $125,000 in prize money. The 2019 Gunsynd Classic was won by Gem Song from Starkers with Belle Roc third.
Formerly known as the 'Doomben Classic', the Brisbane Racing Club changed the race name to the 'Gunsynd Classic' for the 2009/2010 racing season and it takes place alongside the Group 2 Victory Stakes.

The Gunsynd Classic is a set weights race for three-year-olds that typically attracts the better local gallopers going around. The race itself suits the better performed 3yo horses entered for the event due to the level weights playing field.
Three-year-olds contesting this event may go on to tackle the Gr3 Rough Habit Plate over 2020m at Doomben and Brambles (3rd in 2012) finished third in this race before going on to win the Rough Habit Plate at his next start.
In recent years Belmonte (2006), Bob's Boy (2003) and Marble Halls (1997) have all managed to take out the Gunsynd Classic & Rough Habit Plate double.
Gem Song (2019) ran fourth in the Listed South Pacific Stakes over 1400m at Randwick in Sydney before scoring an impressive victory in this event for trainer Kris Lees.
Recent Gunsynd Classic winners include Villermont (2018) and Dreams Aplenty (2017).
