    Ran as part of The Championships, the Australian Oaks is a race that holds a special place in the hearts of the punters.

    Australian Oaks History

    First raced in 1885, the Australian Oaks has been a staple of filly racing in the country since its inception.

    First ran as the AJC Oaks, the race has had a bumpy history along the journey with a period between 1895 and 1921 seeing the race not held, resuming as the Adrian Knox Oaks for a further 35 years.

    The race has also had a number of different dates, finally setting on the March timeline once The Championships inaugurated.

    Today it is run on the second day of the Sydney Championships and has Surround, Light Fingers and Leilani among its former winners. 

    Australian Oaks Field

    We normally have a rough idea of the fillies that will take to the field in the Oaks but the final number isn't set in stone until the week leading up to the race.

    Australian Oaks Form Guide

    The Australian Oaks form can be hard to read but in recent times the Vinery Stud Stakes has proved to be a great lead in race.

    The winner of the Vinery Stud Stakes gets a ballot exempt entry into this race and in 2019 New Zealand raider Verry Elleegant delivered the goods in stunning fashion to complete the double.
