Winners and Past Results for the Australian Oaks.

Australian Oaks

The ATC Australian Oaks is contested over a distance of 2400 metres and is held annually each April at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney.

The Australian Oaks hosted by the Australian Turf Club in Sydney attracts the best three-year-old fillies.

The race is run under set weight conditions over a distance of 2400 meters.

Held during the Sydney autumn racing carnival towards the end of April, the AJC Oaks offers prize money worth $1,000,000.

The Group 1 Sydney Cup, the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Group One Queen Of The Turf Stakes are three of the major events also held on the same day.

The Australian Oaks is a premier staying race and is one of the toughest with quality fillies entering the fray from feature races like the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes held earlier at Rosehill Racecourse or the Group 2 Adrian Knox Stakes held a week earlier at Randwick.

All fillies in the AJC Oaks carry a set-weight of 56 kilograms, favouring the cream of the crop. Many winners move on to become broodmares at the end of their racing career, which just goes to show the quality of fillies that compete in the blue ribbon event.

Classy fillies that also became outstanding broodmares include Research the 1989 winner of the AJC Oaks, Triscay in 1991, and Grand Archway in 1999. 

The AJC Oaks began as a principal race in 1885 with Uralla recorded as the inaugural winner. Between 1922 and 1945 the race was held in January and run over 1600 meters. The distance kept changing between 8 and 12 furlongs and is now a 2400 meter race since 1973.

The AJC Oaks achieved its Group 1 status in 1980. The fastest filly on the tracks during the AJC Oaks until today is the 2006 winner, Serenade Rose who recorded a time of 2:28.6 seconds. Among notable stayers to claim victory include Flight in 1944, Evening Peal in 1956, Leilani in 1974, Grand Archway in 1999, and Sunday Joy in 2003.

The AJC Oaks was formerly known as the Adrian Knox Stakes until 1956. Over the past two decades only 5 favourites have obliged with Serenade Road being the last in 2006. Jockey Glen Boss has won the AJC Oaks three times steering Serenade Rose, Republic Lass, and Danendri to victory.

2014 AJC Australian Oaks

Favourite Lucia Valentina was flat at the start and settled at the back of the field, while Rising Romance settled a few places behind the leaders Amanpour and Forever Loved. The leading pair ambled down the back straight, while Zanbagh started to make a move and Lucia Valentina was pushed forward. Meanwhile, Rising Romance had enjoyed the run of the race and when they straightened, she shot to the lead with ease. Zanbagh and Lucia Valentina were side by side as they chased down Rising Romance, but the Kiwi horse had built up a big enough margin to see them off..
