The Tattersall’s Tiara is a 1400 metre weight-for-age event for fillies and mares held at Eagle Farm. It is run by the Brisbane Racing Club in June and is the final Group 1 race of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.
- Race Type: Group 1, 3YO & Up Fillies and Mares WFA
- Distance: 1,400 metres
- Track: Eagle Farm Racecourse, Brisbane, Queensland
- Date: Saturday 24 June 2017
The Tattersall’s Tiara is a fairly new race as it was first held in 1989 when La Posette won over 1500 metres. It became a Listed Race in 1992, a Group 3 in 1996 then a Group 2 in 2006. The following year, 2007, it was given Group 1 status and the distance was reduced to 1400 metres. In 2017 it was switched to 1350m at Doomben because of issues with the track surface at Eagle Farm.
Lead-up races are the Group 2 Dane Ripper Quality which is a fillies and mares event over 1400 metres, and the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap over 1400 metres. The only horse to take out the Dane Ripper – Tattersall’s Tiara double was Tripping who won as a three-year-old in 1996. The three-year-old Dane Ripper won both the Stradbroke and Winter Stakes in 1997 and then went on to win the 1997 Cox Plate.
The Tattersall’s Tiara is the final Group 1 event of the racing season in Australia and attracts a quality field of fillies and mares from both locally and interstate. Only one horse has won it more than once and that was Bonanova who won in 1999 and 2000 as a four-year-old and five-year-old. In 2015 it was held at Gold Coast racecourse.
