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 prizemoney. The 2018 Gunsynd Classic was won by Villermont from Dark Dream with Omineca 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.

|Track:||Eagle Farm racecourse, Brisbane|
|Race Type:||3yo - Set Weights|
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.
Villermont (2018) ran fourth in the Gr3 ATC Carbine Club Stakes over 1600m at Randwick in Sydney before heading to Sydney to win this event for Caulfield trainer Ciaron Maher. Recent Gunsynd Classic winners include Dreams Aplenty (2017) and Cylinder Beach (2016).
