The in-form combination/combination of Hayes/Dabernig and Regan Bayliss will present Harlow Gold here at her third run for the campaign. This will be the first time the Tavistock filly has raced the Sydney way, with all nine of her career runs coming in Melbourne. She resumed in the G3 The Vanity at Flemington over 1400m where she was doing her best work on the line after settling at the rear and then launching her run down the straight to grab 3rd. Following that run she was then given her chance against ‘the boys’ in the Australian Guineas and was working into the race strongly in the closing stages to be just 1.5 lengths from the winner Hey Doc at the finish where she was looking for runs on the fence. Getting out to 2000m for the first time this prep look ideal as she works towards the Australian Oaks for the VRC Oaks runner-up.

ATC AUSTRALIAN OAKS INFORMATION

ATC AUSTRALIAN OAKS INFORMATION

The ATC Australian Oaks is one of the most competitive horse races for young stayers at the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Run over the 2400m distance at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse, The Oaks consistently groups the best three-year-old fillies to battle it out for a share in the $1m prize pool. The event is run under set weight conditions and is one of the feature races on the Day 2 of The Championships. Competitors in the field tend to use the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes or the Group 2 Adrian Knox Stakes as lead up races to this event.

In 2012, the Guy Walter trained Streama finished runner-up in the Storm Queen Stakes before going on to take out the ATC Australian Oaks a fortnight later. The race dates back to 1885 when won by Uralla. Some of the best female stayers have been successful in this blue ribbon event including; Light Fingers (1965), Leilani (1974), Surround (1977), Our Sophia (1985), Research (1989), Triscay (1991), Circles Of Gold (1995), Republic Lass (2002), Sunday Joy (2003), Serenade Rose (2006) and Streama (2012).
