Ladbrokes Tip: the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is a key lead-up to the JJ Atkins each year
The Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, formerly the QTC Sires’ Produce Stakes, is a feature race for two-year-olds previous run on Doomben 10,000 Day. It now takes place at Eagle Farm Racecourse in late May each Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on the new-look Kingsford-Smith Cup Day. Held on the same day as the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m), which was formerly known as the BTC Cup, the 1400m contest is run at set weights and is a key lead-up to the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm the following month.
Offering a total of $250,000 in total prize money, the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes attracts the winter’s top juveniles and the last to complete the BRC Sires’ – JJ Atkins double was Sizzling (2012).

2017 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes Tips
Our Ladbrokes’ insider BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes 2017 betting tips with the two-year-old gallopers to back and sack this winter will be detailed below a day or so out from the race so stay tuned.
- 1st: #1 Tangled ($5.50) – One of the best in betting from Sydney’s best trainer Chris Waller. This son of Snitzel won over 1350m at Wyong two back before a Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) victory at Doomben a fortnight ago. In top form, will see out 1400m no worries especially with the blinkers on. Should be up on the pace throughout and has McEvoy aboard again.
- 2nd: #8 Mishani Bullitt ($34) – Love the roughie odds on offer for this local Chris Anderson-trained Show A Heart colt. Is improving each run and has form around the likes of Ours To Keep from the summer. Proven over this distance when scoring a half-length win over Capital Gain at the Sunshine Coast on a Heavy (8) track two weeks ago. Fitter again and will get similar track conditions on Saturday.
- 3rd: #17 Ruby Red Heart ($26) – Trainer John Zielke has a high opinion of this JJ Atkins-bound filly who he believes will be at her best over a mile. Up to 1400m here after a close fifth in the Group 3 Ken Russell at the Gold Coast over 1200m. Extra metres suit, was a $41 roughie last time out and was beaten just two lengths after a run from barrier 14 of 14. Ideal gate three draw here.
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).
