Ladbrokes Tip: The Roses – Queensland Oaks is a popular winter betting double in Brisbane
The Roses, also known as The Doomben Roses, is a Group 2 race for three-year-old fillies run at Doomben Racecourse on a Saturday May during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Offering $175,000 in total prize money, the set weights race is run over 2000m and is held on the same day as the carnival’s first elite level race – the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m).
The fillies lining-up in The Roses field are traditionally heading towards a run in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse a fortnight later and the last filly to complete the double was Scarlett Lady (2011).
Before her, subsequent Caulfield and Melbourne Cup winner Ethereal (2011) was the last Doomben Roses winner to win the Queensland Oaks. In 2014, The Roses winner Arabian Gold went on to run second to Tinto in the Queensland Oaks, Tinto having come off a second in The Roses. Both Gondokoro (2nd in 2013) and Quintessential (4th in 2012) also went on to win the the group 1 after a good lead-up run in the Doomben Roses.
