Now known as the 'SA Fillies Classic', the SA Oaks is held on the final day of the Adelaide carnival alongside the Gr1 Goodwood, Gr3 National Stakes & Gr3 RA Lee Stakes.

2018 SA Oaks info

Date: Saturday 19th May 2018
Track: Morphettville racecourse, Adelaide
Distance: 2500 metres
Race Type: 3yo Fillies - Set Weights
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $175,000
2017 Winner: Ana Royale

The SA Oaks is the longest distance event for three-year-old fillies at group level during the Adelaide autumn racing carnival and being over 2500 metres, under set weight conditions, lends itself to the classier fillies in the race.

Fillies contesting this event may have come through the Gr1 Australasian Oaks earlier in the carnival and Irish Darling (2005) was the last filly to win both races, while Ana Royale (2017) finished third before winning here. Miss Lily Rose (2nd in 2009) placed in both races.

Any fillies good enough to tackle the colts & geldings may come via the Gr1 SA Derby or Gr3 Chairmans Stakes on their way to this event. Zarita (2008) was the last filly to take out the SA Oaks & SA Derby double.

Ana Royale (2017) ran third in the Gr1 Australasian Oaks over 2010m at Morphettville before scoring an easy victory in this event and recent SA Oaks winners include Chabaud (2016) and Okahu Bay (2015).
