|Race Type:||3yo Fillies - Set Weights|
The ATC Australian Oaks is is the premier staying race for three-year-old fillies during the Sydney autumn carnival and is run over the classic oaks distance of 2400m at set weights which favours the better females in the race.
The race is a blue ribbon event for young females on the Australian racing calendar and can increase the winner's value immeasurably should they go on to become a broodmare at the end of their career.
Any three-year-old fillies competing in the Oaks may come via the Gr1 Storm Queen Stakes held earlier in the carnival at Rosehill or the Gr2 Adrian Knox Stakes the previous week at Randwick. Royal Descent was the last filly to take out the Adrian Knox Stakes & ATC Australian Oaks double while Candlebra (3rd in 2015) won the Adrian Knox Stakes prior to finishing third in the third in the Oaks.
The ATC Oaks has been won by some classy fillies over the years including Streama (2012), Grand Archway (1999), Triscay (1991) and Research (1989), who all went on to become quality mares of the Australian turf.
Winx (2nd in 2015), Dear Demi (2nd in 2013) and Gondokoro (3rd in 2013) went on to taste black type success during the Brisbane winter racing carnival in Queensland after placing in the ATC Oaks. Winx took out the Gr3 Sunshine Coast Guineas at the Sunshine Coast, Dear Demi snared the Gr3 Doomben Roses at Doomben and Gondokoro claimed the Gr2 PJ O'Shea Stakes at Eagle Farm.
Unforgotten (2018) ran second in the Gr1 Storm Queen Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill before scoring a stylish victory in this event and recent ATC Australian Oaks winners include Bonneval (2017) and Sofia Rosa (2016).
