2021 Queensland Oaks Results

  • 1st: #1 Duais
  • 2nd: #8 Charms Star
  • 3rd: #10 Signora Nera



The Queensland Oaks is a set weights race now 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 2200m, the Group 1 classic is worth $600,000 in prize money and is now the marquee race on Queensland Oaks Day.

From 2017 – 2019 the Queensland Oaks Day meeting ran at Doomben Racecourse over 2200m, moving from its previous track (Eagle Farm) and distance (2400m). There was no Queensland Oaks held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and then in 2021 the race returned to Eagle Farm, but retained the shorter 2200m distance.

The Group 2 The Roses (2000m) is held two weeks earlier and is regarded as the best lead-up race to the Queensland Oaks. The latest fillies to win the Doomben Roses / Queensland Oaks double are Youngstar (2018), Scarlett Lady (2011) and 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 VRC Oaks in Melbourne attracting mainly locally-trained hopefuls.

The Queensland Oaks 2021 ran on Saturday June 5, 2021 and was won by the Edward Cummings-trained favourite Duais.

2021 Queensland Oaks Results

  • 1st: #1 Duais
  • 2nd: #8 Charms Star
  • 3rd: #10 Signora Nera

The Edward Cummings-trained Duais ($2.80F) was far too good for her rivals over the 2200m fresh in the Queensland Oaks 2021 results, the ATC Oaks runner-up going one better in the sunshine state with a runaway 2.5 length victory over the Chris Waller-trained duo of Charms Star (2nd) and Signora Nera (3rd).

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.

The 2020 Queensland Oaks was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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).
