Australasian Oaks History

Three-year-old fillies compete under set weights conditions in the Australasian Oaks.

It is held alongside another Group 1 feature on the program in the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for the fillies and mares.

The Australasian Oaks was first run in 1982 as a Group 3 event when taken out by Crown Oaks and Australian Derby winner Rose Of Kingston.

From 1983 onwards it has held Group 1 status and has had a number of small distance changes before reverting back to the original 2000m journey.

The following distances have all been conducted in relation to the Australasian Oaks throughout its history – 2000m, 2005m, 2006m, 2008m, 2014m, 2020m, 2024m, 2025m and 2031m.

It has been held at Morphettville for all bar one of its editions when Tully Thunder claimed the event at Victoria Park in 2002. She defeated 2003 Melbourne Cup runner-up She’s Archie by close to one length.

Carrying $500,000 in prizemoney, the race attracts the best local three-year-old fillies including interstate raiders with the most recent edition having been taken out by unbeaten Victorian filly Abbey Marie.

The Mick Kent-trained filly was having her third career start in the Australasian Oaks. She had won over 1300m and 1440m before stepping up to the 2000m and proving superior on the day.

The day is known as South Australia’s richest day of racing with support races including the Group 2 Queen of the South Stakes (1600m), Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m).

Hall of Fame trainer Lee Freedman has trained the winner of the Australasian Oaks on four occasions with Miss Clipper (1986), Mannerism (1991), Gatherneaux (1992) and Grand Echezeaux (2000) all saluting for the astute horseman.

Another Hall of Fame trainer has trained the winner on three occasions with the late Bart Cummings preparing Royal Regatta (1983), Stapleton Lass (1989) and Our Tristalight (1993) to win their respective editions.

The main lead-up to the Australasian Oaks is the Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) run two weeks prior with three of the past five winners having come through the race; Invest (2012), Maybe Discreet (2013) and May’s Dream (2014) all finished top four in the lead-up event without winning.

Notable winners of the Australasian Oaks include Imposera (1988), Mannerism (1991), Our Tristalight (1993), Tristalove (1994), Grand Echezeaux (2000), Anamato (2007), Zarita (2008), Gallica (2009), Lights Of Heaven (2011), May’s Dream (2014) and Delicacy (2015).
