The WA Oaks is Western Australia's Group 3 classic staying event for three-year-old fillies and is held in March at
Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia. The race is run over a distance of 2400 metres under set weight conditions and worth $250,000 in prizemoney. The 2013 WA Oaks was won by Moreish from Summah's Touch with Pants On Friar third.
The WA Oaks generally attracts the best local females going around and might also be on the agenda for any interested interstate fillies who might want to attempt an easier Oaks event than their eastern states counterparts.
Generally not attracting the best 3yo fillies in Australia like the Gr1 Crown Oaks and Gr1 AJC Oaks do in the eastern states, the WA Oaks typically asembles a field of predominantly local gallopers.
Capable fillies from this race might consider going on to tackle the males in the Gr2 WA Derby in April and Dreamway (2011) and Grand Journey (2008) have been the most recent fillies to complete the WA Oaks & WA Derby double.
The listed Natasha Stakes over 2200m at Ascot has been a great guide to the WA Oaks in recent years with Moreish (2013), Dreamaway (2011), Impressive Jeuney (2010) and Grand Journey (2008) all taking out the Natasha Stakes & WA Oaks double.
Moreish (2013) won the Natasha Stakes before scoring in this event and recent WA Oaks winners have been Pop Cultures (2012) and Dreamaway (2011).
