The Brisbane Racing Club (BRC) was formed on 1 July, 2009 – the result of a merger between the Queensland Turf Club (QTC) and Brisbane Turf Club (BTC). The amalgamation of the former two clubs was the first of its kind for the Australian racing industry.
As the leading metropolitan race club in Queensland, the BRC conducts 98 race meetings and hosts over 300,000 patrons each year. Race meetings are conducted at the club’s two racetracks, Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses. Highlights on the racing calendar include the summer (December) and winter (May, June) carnivals. These racing events feature black type races attracting wide interest from the public, media and industry.
The Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival consists of 6 feature meetings from 21 April to 9 June 2018. Each year this racing extravaganza brings some outstanding proven racehorses from all states and New Zealand to compete with the very best Queensland horses. Many of the superstars from the training and riding rinks throughout Australasia will have a presence at the meetings. The major events on the racing calendar are the KIRIN Doomben 10,000, Hardy Brothers Doomben Cup, Treasury Brisbane Qld Oaks, and Queensland's most prestigious race meeting, UBET Stradbroke Day. Brisbane Racing Club also host many other feature racing events including Mekka Wednesday in August and Melbourne Cup Day in November.
The Brisbane Racing Club launched a concept master plan in 2009. The $1.2 billion self-funded development proposes upgrades to facilities at both Eagle Farm and Doomben racetracks as well as a variety of lifestyle, residential and commercial precincts.
One of the biggest developments in Queensland’s history, the primary focus of the concept master plan is to ensure Brisbane has the country’s finest racing facilities.
