|2019 Winner:||Dark Choice|
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 Group 1 VRC Oaks and Group 1 ATC 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 Delicacy (2015), Balmont Girl (2014), Moreish (2013), Dreamaway (2011), Impressive Jeuney (2010) and Grand Journey (2008) all taking out the Natasha Stakes & WA Oaks double.
Dark Choice (2019) ran fourth in the Listed Natasha Stakes over 2200m at Ascot before taking out this event in stylish fashion for the Grant & Alana Williams stable.
Recent WA Oaks winners include Special Alert (2018) and Very Tempting (2017).
