The 2019 Oakleigh Plate is a Group 1 race held at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne in February each year.
Run over a distance of 1,100 metres, the Oakleigh Plate is worth $500,000 in prize money and run under open handicap conditions.
The Oakleigh Plate is run as part of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival and is held on the same day as both the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes for two-year-olds and the Group 1 Futurity Stakes.
The Oakleigh Plate was first run in 1884 when it was won by a horse named Malua. The race is now the middle leg of the autumn sprinting series, being preceded by the Group 1 Lightning Stakes and followed by the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap. The race is known to attract an impressive field of top sprinters each year.
The Group 3 Rubiton Stakes on CF Orr Stakes Day at Caulfield Racecourse and the Group 1 Lightning Stakes at Flemington Racecourse are often used as good lead-up races to the annual Oakleigh Plate. Sparticus won the Rubiton Stakes and Oakleigh Plate double in 1997, while Fastnet Rock won the Lightning Stakes and Oakleigh Plate double in 2005. Those horses that perform successfully in the Oakleigh Plate may then go on to run in races such as the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap two weeks later. Weekend Hussler won this double in 2008.
Notable horses to have won the Oakleigh Plate include Wakeful (1901), Power Duke (1960), Placid Arc (1987), Schillaci (1992), Fastnet Rock (2005), Snitzel (2006), Weekend Hussler (2008) and Starspangledbanner (2010).
