Absolutely the Best in the 100th AJC Australian Oaks

Absolutely had cracked her maiden in the best way possible, winning the 100th running of the AJC Australian Oaks at Randwick today.

The three-year-old filly won the $550,000 race by an incredible three and a half lengths ahead of some of the best company Australia has to offer.

Trainer Michael Kent was thrilled with Absolutely’s first ever career win in the 2011 AJC Australian Oaks.

“Everything went to plan and glad we came,” Kent said.

“It looked a tough oaks but she drew well.”

The trainer said that he was not overly confident of Absolutely’s ability to handle the heavy track before the race, however she more than proved her wet-track ability today.

“She’s a really nice filly and there was the only question of the ground,” Kent said.

Kent will now aim Absolutely at some of the biggest races during Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival.

“(We’ll aim her at the) Caulfield Cup now,” he said.

Absolutely took the lead in the home straight after she cut the home turn on the inside rail, while the remainder of the field turned wide.

“I walked the track and I said I’m really happy with the inside (of the track),” jockey Brad Rawiller said.

“It’s great to get my first group one in the oaks.”
