The South Australian Fillies Classic is a Group 3 race held annually at Adelaide’s Morphettville Racecourse in mid-late May on The Goodwood Day.

A staying showdown run over 2500m for three-year-old fillies at set weights, the SA Fillies Classic field has a capacity of 16 starters and the race offers a total of $170,000 in prize money.

Contending fillies looking to step-up in distance and test their staying abilities may have come via the Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) a fortnight before. In 2017 Ana Royale came off a Group 1 Australasian Oaks third for her SA Fillies Classic win as the favourite.

Positivity (9th in 2024) was the last Australasian Oaks graduate to back-up and win the SA Fillies classic.

Fillies in the SA Fillies Classic field could also be on a quick seven day turnaround coming off a run against the boys the week before in the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) at the same track and distance.

The 2024 SA Fillies Classic ran on Saturday May 11, 2024 on The Goodwood Day and was won in style by the Andrew Forsman-trained favourite, NZ Derby runner-up Positivity ($2.30F).

  • To Win: #5 Gotta Go Guru ($8 at time of publish) – BET NOW 

We’re looking beyond the favourite in this race and putting our faith in the in-form local runner trained by Andrew Gluyas. This well-bred daughter of 2013 Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente has staying power in her bloodlines, and the 2500m distance seems well within her reach. Her last victory was a dominant seven-length runaway over 2000m at Strathalbyn, and she has another win over 2200m under her belt, both achieved with ease. While this is a significant step up in class, her recent form is undeniable and she’s clearly earned her shot at this Group 3 race. Drawing a favourable barrier six and with Jason Holder in the saddle, she represents excellent value.

2024 South Australian Fillies Classic Field

The South Australian Fillies Classic field attracts the season’s top three-year-old staying fillies, primarily from local stables in Adelaide. A number of interstate fillies that were over for the Australasian Oaks may stay on for a shot at the race before heading to Brisbane the following month for the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm.

The official 2024 SA Fillies Classic Field & Barriers are released by the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) on the Wednesday of race week.

The SA Fillies Classic 2024 final field features a smart line-up of young staying fillies led in betting by Group 1 NZ Oaks runner-up Positivity in gate three.

2024 South Australian Fillies Classic Nominations

Nominations for the South Australian Fillies Classic 2024 close the Monday of race week and will be published below.

South Australian Fillies Classic History

The first South Australian Fillies Classic was run in 1951 when Gay Comedy claimed victory and was known as the South Australian Oaks.

It started out as a Principal race run over 10 furlongs and remained the same up until 1973 when the race distance was converted to 2000m.

Less than a decade later the race gained Group 1 status in 1980 and for one year in 1985 the South Australian Oaks was not held. The following year in 1986 the length increased dramatically to 2400m making the South Australian Oaks a genuine staying test for the contending horses.

Then in 1995 the distance was again increased to 2500m before the race was demoted to a Group 2 event in 2005.

A couple of years later the status of the race was again downgraded to its current Group 3 status. In 2009 the race was renamed the South Australian Fillies Classic. In 2010 the race was run over 2400m, and as of 2012 it was run over 2500m.
