Can Quintessential Claim 2012 Queensland Oaks?

John Sargenttrained Quintessential is one of many New Zealand fillies chasing glory in Saturday’s Group 1 $400,000 2012 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm.

The talented daughter of Fast ‘n’ Famous arrived in Australia with plenty of success behind her and boasts a promising early career record of three wins and four place finishes from 10 starts.

Since arriving in Australia she has not had much luck but despite two wide barrier draws has run well on two occasions to produce consecutive fourth-place efforts in the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic and The Roses.

Quintessential has drawn far better here and will be ridden much closer to the fence by Damian Browne after receiving the inside barrier position.

Not sure whether to back this promising New Zealand horse this weekend? Keep reading below for the stats that matter as well as some key reasons to back or sack the up-and-comer!
