The Queensland Oaks
The 2011 Queensland Oaks was first held in 1951 at the Eagle Farm Racecourse and it was a principal race back then. In 1979, the race was elevated to Group 1 status and Prunella won the first Queensland Oaks as a Group 1 race. Since then, this 2400-metre set weights race for three-year-old fillies has been a main attraction during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival every first weekend of June.
Ever since the Queensland Oaks was held, it was only cancelled once and that was in 1957. Also, the Queensland Oaks has not seen a multiple winner due to the quality field that this race attracts every year. Due to the set weights nature of the race with the set weight at 55.5 kilograms, the better horses have the advantage in the race as long as they do not incur injuries.
The Eagle Farm Racecourse, the home turf of the race, has a circumference of 2037 metres and a home straight of 434 metres. Races here are staged counter-clockwise. Meanwhile, the distance of the Queensland Oaks which is 2400 metres makes it ideal for staying at the middle during the early part of the race and turning it up during the home stretch.
Also, the distance of the race makes the barrier draw a non-major factor in the outcome of the race. Fillies that participate in the Queensland Oaks often tune their skills at the 2020-metre Doomben Roses which is held two weeks before the Queensland Oaks. All of the fillies that make it to the final field of the race have what it takes to claim the top prize of the race’s $400,000 prize pool.
