The Australasian Oaks is a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies that takes place each year in April at Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, South Australia during the Adelaide autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 2000 metres for fillies only and worth $400,000 in prizemoney. The 2015 Australasian Oaks was won by Delicacy from Fenway with Bahamas third.
The Australasian Oaks is the premier middle distance staying race for three-year-old fillies during the autumn racing carnival in Adelaide and the set weight conditions of the race suits the better fillies entered. Typically made up of more than handy local fillies, the Australasian Oaks also attracts any interested visitors from other states who choose to make the trek to Adelaide in search of Group 1 success.
The Australiasian Oaks provides the ideal lead up race to the upcoming Gr3 SA Oaks over 2400m at the same track. A race such as the Gr3 Auraria Stakes over 1800m at Morphettville on Gr3 RN Irwin Stakes day earlier in the carnival is a typical lead-up event to this race. In recent times May's Dream (2014) & Maybe Discreet (2013) both placed in the Auraria Stakes on their way to winning this race.
Occasionally a quality female galloper may contest this event and go on to bigger and better things, such as Delicacy (2015) & Zarita (2008), who both managed to beat the colts & geldings in the Gr1 SA Derby later in the carnival, while Southern Speed (3rd in 2011) went on to win the Gr1 Caulfield Cup the following spring at Caulfield in Melbourne.
Delicacy (2015) won the Gr2 WATC Derby over 2400m at Ascot in Perth before heading to Adelaide to win this event in stylish fashion and recent Australasian Oaks winners include Mays Dream (2014) and Maybe Discreet (2013).
