Is There A Draw Bias in the Australasian Oaks?

The Australasian Oaks looks a great race in terms of fairness with the barrier draws as there is no obvious bias looking at the stats.

A very even spread of winners from different barriers combined with set weights allows the best horses in the Australasian Oaks to show their credentials.

In recent years, champion Sydney trainer Chris Waller has sent over several horses to compete in the race which adds more depth to the race. He was successful with Egg Tart in 2017 and Toffee Tongue in 2020.
