The Queensland Oaks is a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies conducted by the Brisbane Racing Club as part of the Queensland racing carnival.
The Queensland Oaks was first run in 1951 won by Maltmaid.
The Queensland Oaks is run under set weight conditions and is usually run over the mile and a half but has been at 2200m when the races are conducted at Doomben. Even with Eagle Farm back in 2019, the Oaks will be run at Doomben.
Interstate and NZ trainers have had a field day. Mon Mekki was the only local horse to win for years before Tinto.
Some of the great bloodlines have been re-established with the Denise’s Joy lineage from Joie Denise, Naturalism’s sister Crystal Palace winning and Romanee Conti was a top quality mare before producing Ethereal.
Ethereal would go on to win the Caulfield and Melbourne Cup that year in 2001 after coming from a long way back to win her Oaks.
Winx won her Oaks when the race was run at Doomben in 2015 over 2200m. It was her first G1 as part of her extraordinary winning streak past all the all-time greats.
In fact the years the race has been at Doomben, Chris Waller has won them all – Winx, Egg Tart and Youngstar.
The 1999 Oaks was rained out and run a week later. Miss Danehill won the Oaks and another filly Camarena won the Derby. Same thing happened in 2016 with the Oaks back a week when Provocative won.
The 2019 Queensland Oaks is worth $500,000 in prizemoney.
Past winners include Evening Peal (1955), Bright Shadow (1968), Analie (1973), Denise’s Joy (1976), Surround (1977), Lowan Star (1980), November Rain (1981), Round The World (1987), Bravery (1988), Triscay (1991), Slight Chance (1993), Joie Denise (1995), Arctic Scent (1996), Ethereal (2001), Eskimo Queen (2007), Purple (2009) and Winx (2015).
The 2018 Queensland Oaks was won by Youngstar from Another Dollar and Sheezdashing.
