BRC Unveils $20M Stabling Complex

Thursday, 13th April 2017

The Brisbane Racing Club has opened its new state-of-the-art stabling facilities in a huge boost for the Queensland racing industry. The $20 million stabling complex in the Eagle Farm infield is now housing leading trainers Rob Heathcote and Liam Birchley with all 430 stables to be filled in time for the Brisbane Racing Carnival next month. Eagle Farm is Queensland’s largest training base with more than 500 horses using the tracks six mornings a week. The stabling complex is part of a $40 million investment of Brisbane Racing Club Members’ funds into the Eagle Farm infield, in addition to $10 million from Racing Queensland’s Racing Infrastructure Fund for the new course proper. “This is a significant investment in a project that will boost the state’s racing industry,” BRC Chairman Neville Bell said. The investment includes:

  • Stabling complex for 430 horses
  • New pedestrian tunnel to provide access from the infield to the racecourse
  • New infield carpark for 1000 vehicles
  • Flood mitigation works
  • Super screen
  • Resurfacing of the two grass training tracks
  • Modern irrigation system to service the course proper and training tracks
