The Group 1 Neds Oakleigh Plate is held during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival at Caulfield Racecourse at the end of February each year. Raced over a short distance of 1100m, runners in the Oakleigh Plate field normally arrive via the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1100m) and the Australia Stakes (1200m) if they are not resuming in the Blue Diamond Stakes Day sprint.

As an open handicap race, the Oakleigh Plate attracts some of the strongest and fastest horse from around the country to win the $500,000 in prize money. Many of the best horses in this race will go on to race in the slightly longer Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) down the Flemington straight the following month.

The Oakleigh Plate is held alongside the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m). Recent winners of the Oakleigh Plate – Newmarket Handicap double include Lankan Rupee (2014) and Weekend Hussler (2008).

The Oakleigh Plate 2021 runs on Saturday February 20, 2021.

Oakleigh Plate History

The Oakleigh Plate was first won by Malua in 1884 and has since been a tough race to win twice with only two horse managing a double victory. Dual Choice took out the Oakleigh Plate title in two consecutive years in 1971 and 1972, following the non-successive wins of Aurie’s Star (1937 & 1939).

The Oakleigh Plate has resulted in a dead heat for first place twice in a row firstly by Merab and First Arrow in 1931 and then Blematic and Umbertana in 1932. Notable recent Oakleigh Plate winners include subsequent star sires Fastnet Rock (2005) and Snitzel (2006), along with Lankan Rupee (2014) and Flamberge (2016).
