Looking for early info on this year’s Australian Oaks? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

Run over 2,400 metres every March at Randwick Racecourse as the fillies’ feature race on Day 2 of ‘The Championships’ each April, the Group 1 Australian Oaks is a lucrative $1 million set weights contest that attracts a quality line-up of three-year-old staying fillies each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. 

The previous weekend’s Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes is a traditional lead-up into the Australian Oaks and Colette (2020) was the last filly to complete the double.

The Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) is another key lead-up into the ATC Oaks and the Chris Waller-trained duo of Verry Elleegant (2019) and Hungry Heart (2021) are the latest to do the double.
