Queensland Oaks Betting

Futures Queensland Oaks betting opens weeks in advance of the race offering pre-field prices on the likely fillies heading towards the classic. The Queensland Oaks odds on the final field firm once the last round of acceptances is released, and many punters prefer to wait until this time to place their bets.

Fillies coming off a dominant run in The Roses at Doomben often lead the Queensland Oaks markets and the last to complete the double was Youngstar (2018). In 2014 Tinto ran second in The Roses before winning the Queensland Oaks, while Arabian Gold won that year’s The Roses before her Oaks second next-up.

In 2022 The Roses ran over 2100m just one week before the Oaks after being rescheduled due to heavy rainfall, and the winner Barb Raider was brave on the quick back-up running second to Gypsy Goddess in the Queensland Oaks results that winter.

Favourites have a strong recent record in the Queensland Oaks with eight from 2006 – 2023 saluting for the punters as the top fancy in betting including Egg Tart ($3.10 in 2017) and Youngstar ($3.70 in 2018) – both trained by Chris Waller; the Ed Cummings-trained Duais ($2.80 in 2021); and most recently the David Vandyke-trained Queensland local Gypsy Goddess ($4.40 in 2022).

The last double-figure Queensland Oaks winner to score a notable upset was Miss Keepsake ($31 in 2010). There was a surprise winner at big Queensland Oaks odds in 2019 with Winning Ways (20/1).

In 2022 the Queensland Oaks winner Amokura won her Black-Type debut saluting at $8 to defeat $101 roughie Reo in a lucrative quinella.

Queensland Oaks Field

The Queensland Oaks race field features a line-up of the winter’s best three-year-old staying fillies, many stepping out over the distance for the first time that campaign.

The largest Queensland Oaks field in recent years was 20 starters in 2002 when Mon Mekki won from barrier 4 as a $51 roughie. The smallest recent Queensland Oaks field featured only seven runners in 1991 when Triscay was successful.

Earlier, a nice Queensland Oaks lead-up held in Sydney is Randwick’s Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) run at Royal Randwick in April. Duais (2021) was the last filly to complete the Adrian Knox Stakes – Queensland Oaks double with an Australian Oaks second in between.

Going even further back to the December prior during the Brisbane Summer Racing Carnival, potential Queensland Oaks fillies may run against the boys in the Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes (2100m), a race the 2022 Queensland Oaks winner Gypsy Goddess won in the summer of 2021.
