BRC Sprint 2022

Saturday May 28th, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The BRC Sprint serves as a nice lead-up into the Stradbroke Handicap

*Note: The 2022 BRC Sprint was moved from Doomben on May 21, 2022 to Eagle Farm on May 28, 2022 and will take place on Queensland Derby Day over 1300m due to heavy rainfall and unsafe racing conditions at Doomben Racecourse. 

The BRC Sprint is a Group 3 quality handicap event runs at Doomben Racecourse on a Saturday in May during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on Doomben Cup Day*.

The COVID-19 pandemic saw a number of big changes to the 2020 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival including the BRC Sprint running over 1200m instead of the traditional 1350m.

Currently offering a lucrative $250,000 in total prize money as of 2022, the race serves as a nice lead-up into the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm.

Tyzone (2019) won the BRC Sprint before a Stradbroke second and then improved on an unplaced BRC Sprint run the following year before winning the 2020 Stradbroke Handicap. In 2021 Tofane improved on her lead-up second in the BRC Sprint to win that winter’s Stradbroke Handicap.

The next edition of the BRC Sprint runs on Saturday May 28th, 2022 over 1300m at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Queensland Derby Day having been moved from Doomben the Saturday prior due to heavy rainfall.

BRC Sprint Betting

BRC Sprint betting markets are led by in-form sprinters coming off good lead-up runs from the autumn – early winter season. The runners that finished in the money in races like the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) at Randwick often sit high up the BRC Sprint odds, as do any returning runners that performed well in previous editions of the race.

Favourites only have a fair record in the BRC Sprint so looking for horses further down the markets, especially any Group 1 performers or 1400m horses down in grade or distance.

There was a notable upset in 2021 however with the BRC Sprint winner Emerald Kingdom saluting at 30/1.

  • To Win: #3 Emerald Kingdom ($13 at time of publish) – BET NOW

At over $10 in betting, going out on a limb with Rob Heathcote’s last start The Archer winner. This evergreen seven-year-old hasn’t run on Heavy going, but his record on Slow going is strong (4:2-0-1). He was probably better at the original track with plenty of form at the track/distance being a bit of a Doomben specialist boasting a 50% winning strike rate from eight runs there, but remains value. Carried 59kg in Rockhampton last start, so okay weight-wise with 58.5kg here coming back home. He’s back in form returning with confidence and can surprise a few here in a good edition of the BRC Sprint.

BRC Sprint Form Guide

Looking for sprinters coming off a Black-Type win, those that ran well in Sydney’s Hall Mark Stakes last time out, runners proven at the Doomben track and Stradbroke hopes are all important when doing the BRC Sprint form.

The BRC Sprint form has also stacked up in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap in recent years.
