Dane Ripper Stakes 2020

Saturday June 13, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: The Dane Ripper Stakes is a key lead-up to the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara

Note: The COVID-19 pandemic saw a number of big changes to the 2020 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival including the Dane Ripper Stakes running a week after the Stradbroke offering a reduced $175,000. There was also no Tattersall’s Tiara being held in 2020 and the Dane Ripper Stakes ran as a weight-for-age event instead of set weights plus penalties. 

The Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes is traditionally one of the major support acts on Stradbroke Handicap Day held on a Saturday in mid-June each year at Eagle Farm Racecourse at the end of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. The meeting is traditionally host to a triple shot of Group 1 racing action with the Stradbroke Handicap, Queensland Derby and JJ Atkins all highlights on the card.

The 2017 Dane Ripper Stakes ran Doomben over 1350m after Eagle Farm Racecourse was declared unfit for racing, while in 2020 the race ran the weekend after the Stradbroke due to COVID-19 and was won in an upset by 40/1 shot Love You Lucy.

There are also a number of Group 2 features on the program including the Dane Ripper Stakes, formerly the Dane Ripper Quality, for fillies and mares. Run over 1400m at set weights plus penalties, the event was previous run under handicap conditions.

In 2020 the Dane Ripper Stakes ran as the headline race and took place as a weight-for-age event offering $175,000.

It usually offers a total of $200,000 in prize money and is a key lead-up into the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) held at the same track and distance a fortnight later during the broader Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

The last horses to complete the Dane Ripper Stakes – Tatterall’s Tiara double are Invincibella (2019) and then three-year-old Cosmic Endeavour (2014) repeating the feat achieved the previous year by Red Tracer (2013). Red Tracer also won the 2012 edition and was the first back-to-back Dane Ripper Stakes winner.

Later the fellow Chris Waller-trained Invincibella (2018-19) would also win successive editions of the event before her 2019 Tattersall’s Tiara win.

In 2020 the Dane Ripper Stakes ran on Saturday June 13, 2020 as a weight-for-age race offering $175,000 and saw Love You Lucy win at $41 odds.

Dane Ripper Stakes Odds & Betting

Dane Ripper Stakes odds are led by in-form mares coming off good lead-up runs in similar class and company. The results of earlier races like the Glenlogan Park Stakes in Brisbane affect the Dane Ripper Stakes betting markets each winter, and combining those two female-only races is a popular betting double with the punters.

Sydney raiders have a top record in the Dane Ripper so the in-form interstate visitors from stables like that of Chris Waller who prepared dual winners Red Tracer (2012-13) and Invincibella (2018-19) often are high up the markets.

Dane Ripper Stakes betting opens after the final field of acceptances is released the Wednesday before the race takes place that Saturday.

The biggest upset in recent history was in 2020 when the winner Love You Lucy jumped as a 40/1 roughie in Dane Ripper Stakes betting.

2020 Dane Ripper Stakes Betting

The season’s latest Dane Ripper Stakes 2020 odds and betting markets on the fillies & mares in the mix  will be available below the week of the race so stay tuned.

Dane Ripper Stakes Field

The Dane Ripper Stakes field features a quality line-up of nice fillies and mares that are looking to back-up into the more lucrative Tattersall’s Tiara two weeks later back at Eagle Farm Racecourse.

Runners come via a number of different lead-up races including Brisbane’s Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) run a fortnight earlier at Doomben Racecourse. In 2014 Belle De Coeur ran second in the Glenlogan before a third to Cosmic Endeavour in the Group 2 Dane Ripper, while in 2016 Cradle Me also finished runner-up in the Glenlogan before her Dane Ripper Stakes success. The Glenlogan form was franked once more in 2018 when the runner-up Invincibella won the Group 2 at Doomben on a Heavy track.

Scone’s Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) and Morphettville’s Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) are other interstate races fillies and mares may contest on way to a Dane Ripper Stakes run. In 2015 Bound For Earth ran third in both the Dark Jewel Classic and Dane Ripper Stakes before a fourth in the Tattersall’s Tiara to Srikandi. That same year Hazard completed the Proud Miss Stakes – Dane Ripper double.

Dane Ripper Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race with the final field and barriers out on the Wednesday.

2020 Dane Ripper Stakes Field

The official Dane Ripper Stakes 2020 Field & Barriers are set for release the Wednesday of race week and will be available below so stay tuned to see what fillies and mares make the starting line-up.

The 2020 Dane Ripper Stakes final field is now out with 16 mares in the mix including last start Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic winner Irithea drawn the rails and the Tony Gollan-trained Outback Barbie backing up off a sixth in the Stradbroke. Chris Waller’s Stradbroke Handicap runner-up Madam Rouge was the notable non-acceptor.
