The much anticipated 2012 Queensland Oaks Day has finally arrived and will see Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse play host to a bumper eight-race program.
Unfortunately the weather has not been kind over the past few days which has seen the track rated as heavy (8) and resulted in a number of scratchings.
The good news is there has not been any withdrawals from the feature Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) which will see a full field of 18 horses compete for a share in $400,000.
Other card highlights include the Group 2 Queensland Guineas which features talented three-year-old Mental and the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.
