Arabian Gold Still On Track For Queensland Oaks

Arabian Gold Still On Track For Queensland Oaks

Trainer David Vandyke admits that Arabian Gold felt her run in the Doomben Roses on Saturday, but believes that the talented filly is still on track to contest the 2014 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm next weekend.

Trainer David Vandyke is confident that Arabian Gold will be fit to contest the 2014 Queensland Oaks next …

The 2016 Doomben Roses is a Group 2 race held at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane during the early part of the Brisbane winter carnival. It is an event for three year old fillies run over a journey of 2000m.

For many this will be the first time they step out to this type of distance and they’ll do so under set weight conditions.

The race is worth a healthy $175,000 in prize money and is held on the venue’s biggest day of racing, Group 1 Doomben Cup Day.

It is the second day of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and on a program that includes no less than five Group events.

While Brisbane horses tend to make up the majority of these fields, more and more trainers are travelling up from the southern states and from New Zealand.

It is the perfect lead up to the Group 1 Queensland Oaks over 2400m at Eagle Farm in June and that race is now a very popular one.

There had been a decade long gap for fillies looking for the Doomben Roses, Queensland Oaks double dating back to Ethereal in 2001.

That was broken in 2011 though when another New Zealand horse, Scarlett Lady, blew away her rivals in both events.

For the very best horses they may even have a go at the Queensland Derby after the Oaks against the colts and geldings.

The majority of these horses will be sighted again during the spring carnivals however they won’t always go on to huge heights.

Previous winners of the Doomben Roses include The Jewel in 2003, Gaze in 2006 Awesome Planet in 2009 and Marheta in 2010.
