The Queensland Oaks is a Group 1 classic race for fillies that takes place annually in June at Eagle Farm racecourse in Brisbane, Queensland. The race is run over a distance of 2200 metres under set weight conditions and worth $400,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Queensland Oaks was won by Youngstar from Another Dollar with Sheezdashing third.
The Premier event for three-year-old fillies during the Brisbane winter racing carnival, the Queensland Oaks will take place on Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap day after the Oaks Day meeting was cancelled due to inclement weather.

The Queensland Oaks was first run in 1951 and typically attracts mainly local fillies plus any interested visitors from interstate. The Oaks field is generally not as strong as the Gr1 AJC Oaks at Randwick in Sydney or the Gr1 VRC Oaks at Flemington in Melbourne.
The Gr2 Doomben Roses held earlier in the carnival at Doomben is the most common Oaks lead up race and Youngstar (2018), Heavenly Glow (2008), Cinque Cento (2005) and The Jewel (2003) all won the Doomben Roses before going on to run a place in this race, while Scarlett Lady (2011) was the most recent filly to claim the Doomben Roses & Queensland Oaks double.
Classy galloper Purple (2009) ran third in the Doomben Roses prior to winning this race and she ventured to Melbourne the following spring to win the Gr2 Matriarch Stakes at Flemington before finishing runner-up in the Gr2 Sandown Classic at Sandown.
Youngstar (2018) captured the Doomben Roses over 2000m at Doomben before scoring a narrow victory in this event and recent Queensland Oaks winners include Egg Tart (2017) and Provocative (2016).
