Contested one week after the male equivalent is run in the form of the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m), the Australian Oaks is run on Day 2 of The Championships during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
The Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies was first run in 1885 when won by Uralla and in the following year the race had its first and only dead-heat when the judge failed to split Tamarisk and Crossfire.
It was not held between 1895 and 1921 before returning in 1922 as Vodka proved triumphant.
With $1 million in prizemoney, it attracts the country’s top three-year-old staying fillies and is run alongside three Group 1 features held on Day 2 of The Championships. They are the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m), $2 million Sydney Cup (3200m) and the $1 million Coolmore Legacy Stakes (1600m).
The most reliable lead-up races to the Australian Oaks are the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) held one week earlier on Day 1 of The Championships at Royal Randwick and the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) held two weeks earlier at Rosehill Gardens.
In 1965, Light Fingers won the Australian Oaks and later that year became the first of 12 Melbourne Cup (3200m) winners for master trainer Bart Cummings.
Notable winners of the Australian Oaks include Flight (1944), Evening Pearl (1956), Wenona Girl (1961), Leilani (1974), Surround (1977), Research (1989), Circles of Gold (1995), Grand Archway (1999), Republic Lass (2002), Sunday Joy (2003), Streama (2012), Royal Descent (2013), Rising Romance (2014) and Unforgotten (2018).
The 2015 Australian Oaks isn’t remembered for winner Gust Of Wind. Instead, it is remembered more for the defeat of Winx. Since her second-placing in the race, the great mare hasn’t lost a race with her winning streak in the thirties – and that includes four Cox Plates!
