The 2018 Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival launched with an afternoon of decadence to launch the Winter Carnival. From May 12, Doomben Racecourse will play host to seven heart-stopping Group 1 races backed by a racing programme worthy of royalty.
Beginning the grand content is the KIRIN Doomben 10,00 Day on May 12, one of Australia's best weight-for-age races and the perfect programme for hotshot punters and spiffy racegoers ready to don their favourite vintage number. Running second will be the Hardy Brothers Doomben Cup Day on May 19, bringing a magical flair to the carnival. Lauded for legendary styles, the Treasury Brisbane Ladies Oaks Day on May 26, will be a premier event hosting Best Dressed titles for the prim and proper. The much anticipated UBET Stradbroke Day on June 9 will conclude the Carnival on a winning high, glittering with tradition and the glory of an unrivalled programme weighted with over $3.8 million in prize money.
