RQ releases Summer Carnival programme

The programme for the 2021/22 TAB Queensland Summer Racing Carnival has been released.

Building on the success of recent years, the Summer Carnival will once again go Coast-to-Coast, commencing with the Mooloolaba Cup on November 20 before culminating on January 15 with The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday.

Tattersall’s will host the second week of the Summer Carnival before the Brisbane Racing Club stages five consecutive Saturday meetings across Doomben and Eagle Farm including a re-designed three-year-old programme.

The Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes will be run a week earlier on December 18 at Eagle Farm and will be complemented by The Eagle Way which will be run at Doomben on December 4.

In between, The Gateway will be run at Eagle Farm on December 11, providing a ‘win and you’re in’ for four-year-olds into the Stradbroke Handicap.

The Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes headlines a Boxing Day meeting at Doomben before the same venue hosts the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate on New Year’s Day, along with the Buffering and the Nudgee.

The Gold Coast will host back-to-back meetings including The Wave on January 8 before the Magic Millions.

Once again, The Wave Raceday will provide the last chance saloon for those chasing a start in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic via the Aquis Gold Pearl and Aquis Gold Nugget. 

Based on ratings, a number of feature races are now eligible for black-type status, confirming the strength of the Summer Carnival programme which continues to improve year after year.
