This year’s Australasian Oaks at Morphettville is set to be as exciting as ever, with nominations revealing some of Australia’s best horses are hoping to run in the Group 1 race.
The 2008 metre Australasian Oaks is open to three-year-old fillies only and is worth $350,000 in prize money.
Thus far 29 horses have nominated for the 16 horse field, including last year’s VRC Crown Oaks winner, Brazilian Pulse.
Brazilian Pulse put in a gallant first-up effort last start in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes behind Do Ra Mi to finish second against a quality field.
The Captain Rio filly has won four of her seven previous starts and will have gained some much needed fitness from her last run.
The three-year old has won nearly $1 million in prize money in her short career and has never missed a placing.
Also in the field is the recent winner of the Group 1 Australian Guineas, Shamrocker, who is in stellar form for the 2011 Australasian Oaks.
Shamrocker won the Australian Guineas in astounding style, beating second place-getter Bullbars to the post by almost two lengths.
The O’Reilly filly has won three of her ten starts and has a win percentage of 30%.
Also included in the 2011 Australasian Oaks nominations is David Hayes’ Precious Lorraine, Michael Kent’s Absolutely and John Thompson’s Jeter.
