2013 Australian Oaks Results – Royal Descent Trounces Rivals

Royal Descent has claimed the Group 1 Australian Oaks by an unbelievable margin of ten lengths at Royal Randwick racecourse today April 20, 2013.

The three-year-old was never in danger of losing the $550,000 race as she flew down the home straight in dominant fashion.

Reigning VRC Oaks winner Dear Demi finished the 2013 ATC Australian Oaks in second, while Gondokoro ran home for third.

Royal Descent has now won more than $450,000 in prize money during her horse racing career and has won four of her seven race starts.

The Redoute’s Choice filly backed up her successfully from her win in the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes at the same track last weekend.

Trainer Chris Waller revealed that the decision to run Royal Descent in today’s 2013 Australian Oaks was only made this afternoon.

“We made the decision basically at 1pm,” Waller said.

“Is is magic and I’m excited about her future.”

Waller has originally targeted the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes for Royal Descent, but things did not go to plan.

“I knew we had a very good horse,” he said.

“We had a plan to win the Vinery three weeks ago.

“It didn’t work out, the tracks were wet. Hence the hesitation today”

Jockey Nash Rawiller could not believe the ease with which Royal Descent won the 2013 Australian Oaks.

“I’m a bit lost for words,” Rawiller said.

“I’m still blown away by it.

“I snuck a peak at the 250 (metres) and I was home.

“It’s just so exciting.

“I knew the way she travelled she’d get through (the wet ground).”
