Ladbrokes Tip: The Dane Ripper Stakes is a key lead-up to the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara
The Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes is 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.
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.
It 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 horse to complete the Dane Ripper Stakes – Tatterall’s Tiara double was then three-year-old Cosmic Endeavour (2014) repeating the feat achieved the previous year by Red Tracer (2013).
This year the Dane Ripper Stakes will be run on June, 2017.
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.
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.

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 winner Red Tracer (2012-13) often are high up the markets.
