BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes Field
The BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes field features a line-up of the best performing two-year-olds of the season from local and interstate stables. Runners come via a number of different lead-up races, but the traditional path is via a run in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) at the Doomben track a fortnight earlier.
Sizzling (2012) was the last horse to complete the Champagne Classic – BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes double. He also went on to take out the Group 1 JJ Atkins over the mile, then known as the TJ Smith, and so completed the Queensland 2YO Triple Crown.
The other runner to win all three Brisbane Winter features was Pressday (2010), while other recent winners of the Champagne Classic – BRC Sires’ double include Virage de Fortune (2005) and Lovely Jubly (2002).

- Best Roughie: #9 Tiger Heart ($17 at time of publish)
A good field gathered and some proven in tougher grade, but working his way through the ranks and a genuine hope at a huge price is this Tony Gollan-trained son of Better Than Ready. Drawn a treat in gate six so will get the run of the race on the back of an eye-catching 1400m Sunshine Coast win carrying 59kg. Up in class but down in weight, he’s untapped and improving.
