Australasian Oaks

The 2018 Australasian Oaks, also known as the Schweppes Oaks, is a Group 1 race that is held at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide in early May each year. Run over a distance of 2,000 metres, the Australasian Oaks is worth $500,000 in prize money. The Australasian Oaks is run under set weight conditions and is open to three-year-old fillies only. The Australasian Oaks is held on the same day as the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes and the Group 3 The Janz.

The first Australasian Oaks was run in 1982 when it was won by the talented Rose Of Kingston. It is the premier middle distance race for three-year-old fillies during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival. The set-weight conditions of the race mean that the better runners are given every chance to win against their lesser rivals. Horses that perform well in the Australasian Oaks often go on to run in the Group 3 SA Oaks and the Group 1 SA Derby. The Australasian Oaks usually attracts a predominantly local field of runners, as well as one or two three-year-old fillies who have travelled there after a successful Melbourne or Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Notable winners of the Australasian Oaks include Centaurea (1985), Imposera (1988), Belle Chanson (1990), Mannerism (1991), Tristalove (1994), Leica Smile (1996), Episode (1999), Tully Thunder (2002), Rinky Dink (2004), Anamato (2007), Zarita (2008), Gallica (2009) and Lights Of Heaven (2011).
