Empress Rock Could Target 2012 Australasian Oaks – Race Preview

April 12th, 2012

The Group 1 Australasian Oaks is due to run at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide on Saturday April 28, 2012.

The 2012 Australasian Oaks is set to run over a distance of 2,000 metres and is run under set weight conditions.

Worth $350,000 in prize money, the 2012 Australasian Oaks is open to three-year-old fillies only.

The 2012 Australasian Oaks is run on the same day as the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes, Group 2 Queen Of The South Stakes, Group 3 SAJC Chairman’s Stakes, Group 3 DC McKay Stakes and Listed Dequetteville Stakes.

Last year’s winner of the Australasian Oaks was Lights Of Heaven, who won the race by three lengths ahead of Absolutely and Southern Speed.

Lights Of Heaven has failed to win a race since her Australasian Oaks win last year, with her most recent result being a seventh in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse on April 7, 2012.

A possible runner in the 2012 Australasian Oaks is Empress Rock, who won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic last start.

This was the same race that Lights Of Heaven won on her way to winning the 2012 Australasian Oaks last year.

Empress Rock is already going to Morphettville for the Group 3 Auraria Stakes this weekend, where she will attempt to win her third Group race in a row.

The Fastnet Rock fill has won three of her six race starts and has earned just shy of $350,000 in prize money during her impressive career.
