The Queensland Oaks is sponsored by Treasury Brisbane and is run over 2200 metres. The race is for three-year-old fillies only and carries Group One status.
With a total prize pool of $500,000, the Queensland Oaks always attracts some talented youngsters whose connections are in search of the $300,000 first prize along with some black type.
The Queensland Oaks has a rich history having first been run in 1951 when taken out by Maltmaid. More recently, the likes of Gondokoro, Scarlett Lady, Quintessential have all captured the feature while champion mare Winx won the 2015 edition in what was the first of her world record 25 Group One successes.
Chris Waller has dominated the race in recent times having won three of the past four editions thanks to Winx (2015), Egg Tart (2017) and Youngstar (2018).
