Quintessential Wins 2012 Queensland Oaks

New Zealand filly Quintessential has produced an impressive run to take top honours in the Group 1 2012 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm today.

The John Sargent-trained filly was ridden patiently by experienced jockey Damian Browne from the inside barrier and sat just off the pace before making a move at the top of the straight.


Quintessential is the 2012 Queensland Oaks winner

Once they got to the straight the daughter of Fast ‘n’ Famous showed her talent and raced ahead of the leaders to score a one-length win in front of Eliza Blues and Vittoria.

Sargent questioned his horse’s ability to handle the heavy track prior to the race but she produced an oustanding run that was aided by an excellent ride from Brown.

“It was a lovely ride and that helped a hell of a lot,” Sargent said.

“He just rode her perfectly, got off the right spot at the 600 (metre mark) and then it all paid.”

Browne was relieved to start from the inside after riding the talented to a fourth-place effort in the Roses from barrier 13.

“I said to Sarge [Sargent] after the last run, she only needs to draw a barrier in the Oaks to win and when she got one I was over the moon,” Browne said.

It takes Quintessential’s early career record two four wins from 11 starts and is her first at Group 1 level.

Fellow New Zealand filly Poste Restante set the pace for much of the race but as they came around the final bend she ran out of puff and eventually finished outside the placings.

The much anticipated Queensland Oaks 2012 is now over but the biggest day of the Winter Carnival arrives next weekend and the place to find the best odds is bookmaker.com.au.
