Oakleigh Plate History

The Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) takes place at Caulfield Racecourse annually in February during the Melbourne Autumn Carnival and is an Open Handicap race for sprinters.

The race attracts the country’s best up and coming sprinters and is one of three Group 1 races to be run on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

Other races include the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m), Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m), Group 2 St George Stakes (1800m), Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m), and the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m).

The best lead-up race to the Oakleigh Plate is the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) held at Flemington Racecourse one week earlier.

Sprinters tackling this race may then continue on to the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) down the Flemington straight course on Super Saturday of Racing.

First run in 1884, the Oakleigh Plate was won by champion racehorse Malua when the race was run over six furlongs. In 1973 the race was adjusted to 1200 and has remained that way since.

The illustrious honour roll lists some very accomplished sprinters including Wakeful (1901), Power Duke (1960), Placid Ark (1987), Schillaci (1992), Fastnet Rock (2005), Snitzel (2006), Weekend Hussler (2008) and Starpgledbanner (2010).
