Queensland Oaks 2012 – Miss Artistic’s Chance to Shine

New Zealand Oaks winner Miss Artistic arrived in Australia with plenty of hype and gets a chance this Saturday to live up to her potential in the Group 1 $400,000 2012 Queensland Oaks (2400m).

The Shaune Ritchie-trained filly touched down in Queensland on the back of two consecutive victories but from two starts in Australia has been unable to claim top honours.

There is no doubting her potential though and she finished fourth in tough conditions in the Gold Coast Bracelet and then went within a neck of The Roses winner Invest but had to settle with runner-up.

The daughter of Darci Brahama gets a great opportunity to claim her first Australian victory this weekend when she races at the same distance she won the New Zealand Oaks.

Keep reading for our full run down of important stats as well as reasons to back or sack the talented up-and-comer this weekend.
