Wet 2013 Queensland Oaks? How do the Fillies Stack Up?

With heavy rain falling in Brisbane on Thursday and more showers predicted for Friday afternoon, it is more than likely that Saturday’s Group 1 2013 Queensland Oaks (2400m) will be run on a rain-affected track.

The Eagle Farm surface struggles to hold any water and with the Oaks scheduled late in the day as race seven, there is every chance the three-year-old fillies will be fighting it out on choppy ground.

That puts those with a proven record to get through the ground in the box seat heading into the weekend’s major feature race.

But just how do these fillies stack up in the wet? Keep reading for a run down of the entire field’s wet-track credentials.
