Queensland Oaks

The Queensland Oaks field of 3YO fillies lines-up in late May or early June during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.



The Queensland Oaks is a set weights race traditionally held at Eagle Farm Racecourse for three-year-old fillies in early June each year. Raced during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival over a distance of 2400m, the Group 1 classic is worth $500,000 in prize money.

For the 2017 edition the Queensland Oaks Day meeting ran at Doomben Racecourse over 2200m due to the poor Eagle Farm track conditions and it is the same for the 2018 Queensland Oaks.

The Group 2 Doomben Roses (2020m) is held two weeks earlier and is regarded as the best lead-up race to the Queensland Oaks. The last horse to win the Doomben Roses / Queensland Oaks double was Scarlett Lady in 2011, before her it was Melbourne Cup winner Ethereal in 2001. Although the race is greatly admired in Queensland, its field is not as strong as the ATC Oaks in Sydney or the Crown Oaks in Melbourne attracting mainly locally-trained hopefuls.

The Queensland Oaks 2018 runs on Saturday May 26, 2018 .

Queensland Oaks History

First won by Maltmaid in 1951, the Queensland Oaks was a principal race until 1980 when it was automatically elevated to Group 1 status, the year Lowan Star won.

Since 1988 the fastest winning race time for the Queensland Oaks was recorded by Arctic Scent in 1996 with 2 minutes 27 seconds. The slowest winning time was 2 minutes 45.4 seconds by Triumphal Queen in 1989.

Notable Queensland Oaks winners over the years include Evening Pearl (1955), Surround (1977), Ethereal (2011) who went on to win that year’s Caulfield Cup – Melbourne Cup double and Winx (2015).
