Looking for early info on this year’s Oaklands Plate? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Run over 1,400 metres, the Oaklands Plate is a Listed race taking place at Morphettville Racecourse (on the Morphettville Parks track) in mid to late July each winter racing season. Carrying a prize purse of just over $100,000, the event is a set weights plus penalties race open to two-year-old horses and attracts a quality field of mainly local youngsters chasing a late season Black-Type win.
The Oaklands Plate winner often has Group aspirations for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival including the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) or Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m).
In 2020 the Oaklands Plate winner Instant Celebrity went on to win Melbourne’s Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude and run third in that spring’s Thousand Guineas trifecta. She would further frank the form the following autumn winning Adelaide’s Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes and finishing second in the Group 1 The Goodwood results of 2021.

Which Horse Will Win The Oaklands Plate in 2022
The best way to pick which horse will win the Oaklands Plate in 2021 is to take into account their lead-up winter racing form, assess the barriers and look at the weights.
Additional factors to consider when picking the Oaklands Plate winner include:
- Late Season – The Oaklands Plate takes place right at the tail-end of the runners’ 2YO seasons so looking for rising three-year-olds with previous race experience is key.
- Park Track – The race takes place on the Morphettville Parks track so looking for juveniles that have raced or trialed on the course can prove profitable.
- Trainers – Lindsay Park’s David Hayes has trained four Oaklands Plate winners, while local horseman Tony McEvoy won back-to-back editions in 2018-19. McEvoy celebrated a third victory in 2021 co-training the winning odds-on filly Mac ‘N’ Cheese with Calvin McEvoy.
