Australasian Oaks Betting

At 2000 metres around the South Australian Jockey Club’s Morphettville Racecourse, the Australasian Oaks is the shortest Oaks race on the Australian racing calendar for three-year-old fillies at set weights.

The uniquely “Australasian” titled race pays $320,000 to the winner, while the runner up spot is worth $85,000 and third place receives $40,000. Total prize money up for grabs is $500,000 and pays out down to tenth (10th) place.

The Auraria Stakes in Adelaide is the main lead up to the Oaks but many have come from obscure avenues to capture it.

In recent times, Zarita (2008) and Gallica (2009) won the Kewney Stakes over a mile at Flemington before winning the Oaks.

While, champion Australian three-year-old Delicacy (2015) won the WATC Derby at Ascot before landing her maiden Group One.

And more ambiguously, Abbey Marie (2016) won a rank and file three-year-old fillies benchmark 70 over 1440 metres before taking out the aforementioned feature at just start three.

From this, fillies often go on to race in the SA Fillies Classic, SA Derby and even the Queensland Oaks and Derby.

Traditionally held on the first day of the Adelaide Autumn Carnival, the same day as the Group One Robert Sangster Stakes for fillies and mares, the day is marketed as “Oaks and Ladies Day”.

Since 2002, hoops Damien Oliver, Greg Childs and Luke Nolen have won the race twice. Since 2006, trainers Phillip Stokes and Darren Weir have two each also.
