Doomben

Doomben Racecourse is one of the best racecourses in Australia. Besides the fact that it is historical, it is also famous because of its beauty.

Doomben Racecourse is located seven kilometers away from the center of the city of Brisbane in the suburb of Ascot. It is walking distance from Bribane's other racecourse, Eagle Farm. On July 1 2009, Brisbane Racing Club was formed and they are currently operating the Doomben Racecourse.

The very first meeting at Doomben Racecourse was back in 1933. Some of Australia's most prestigious meetings each year are being hosted at Doomben.

Doomben Racecourse is shaped as an oval track with tight turns, that means that runners who have the inside rail have a great advantage. The advantage also includes the front and on pace runners for this track. The horse track's overall circumference is around 1,715 meters and the straight is about 350 metres long. The type of racing held here at Doomben is done in an anti-clockwise direction. Since the grass track is known for its exemplary drainage system, it can quickly overcome heavy rains. Doomben also has three chutes on their track, one is at 1,350 meters, the other is at 1,650 meters and the last one is at 2,200 meters.

The Doomben Racecourse hosts a variety of high end meetings every year including the Doomben Cup, Lord Mayor's Cup, BTC Classic, Doomben Roses and the Doomben 10,000. These are during the Brisbane Winter and Summer Racing carnivals. The Doomben 10,000 is the most famous event on Doomben's racing calendar, with the 1350 metre weight-for-age race worth $650,000.

Doomben has a lot of features. Its state of the art grandstand gives all racegoers the perfect view of the racetrack and stright, as well as excellent dining facilities.
