What is Australasian Oaks racing?

The Australasian Oaks,  also known as the Schweppes Oaks is a group one race held at Morphettville for three-year-old fillies at set weights over the distance of 2000m.

Held in late April or early May each year, $400,000 goes to the winner of the Australasian Oaks, which is run on the same day as fellow Group 1 race the Robert Sangster Stakes. The race is not an event international runners target, given the prize money is not enormous and the specific nature of the conditions, but the best local and interstate fillies battle it out for Group 1 glory.

The Robert Sangster Stakes also registered as the UBET Classic is a Group 1 weight-for-age race for fillies and mares aged three years and older at South Australian racetrack Morphettville. One of the showpiece events of the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival, the Robert Sangster Stakes is over the 1200m distance and the total prize money for the race is $1 million. In 2006, the Robert Sangster Stakes became the only Group 1 race for fillies and mares over the 1200m distance. The winner of the race pockets $400,000.

How to bet on the Australasian Oaks?

The Australasian Oaks brings out the best three-year-old fillies from South Australia and the rest of the county, but form lines are imperative when picking a winner. The Port Adelaide Guineas has been a great indicator of form leading into the Australasian Oaks for the local horses, but punters need to take into account the preparations of the interstate raiders.

From 2006 through to 2016, only two winners have not won their previous start before taking out the Australasian Oaks, while on just three occasions have favorites failed to place in the race.

In the period between 1983 and 2016, just six Australasian Oaks winners have saluted at a double-figure price, highlighting just how well the market can predict this race.

The Australasian Oaks is a group one race that has an entire day in South Australia dedicated to it, so as you would expect the bookmakers come nice and early to the party for this one. The runners that will nominate for the race are usually pretty cut and dry given the criteria for entry, so bookmakers are able to get their prices in pretty quickly for all-in markets. Tote prices and other Fixed Odds markets tend to open when the race is two to three days away.

General Rules

TAB Dividends Rules on Australasian Oaks

TAB Dividends Rules on Australasian Oaks

In respect of prices based on TAB dividends, should a dividend vary between TABs that normally operate under a pooling arrangement, bet365 will pay out on the dividend of the TAB of the State in which the race was run. If the race is run in another State where pooling does not apply (e.g. NSW) the dividend will be based on whichever TAB has the largest win pool.

Dynamic Odds supplies the prices which form the Victoria Official Price (VOP), Queensland Official Price (QOP) and New South Wales Official Price (NSWOP). The VOP, QOP and NSWOP are collectively referred to as the State Official Price (SOP) by bet365.

VOP refers to the prices supplied by Dynamic Odds on Victorian Horse Racing and only applies to Horse Racing taking place in Victoria. For markets using the VOP for settlement purposes, bet365 will apply the prices from the VOP regardless of any other publications differing.

QOP refers to the prices supplied by Dynamic Odds on Queensland Horse Racing and only applies to Horse Racing taking place in Queensland. For markets using the QOP for settlement purposes, bet365 will apply the prices from the QOP regardless of any other publications differing.

NSWOP refers to the prices supplied by Dynamic Odds on New South Wales Horse Racing and only applies to Horse Racing taking place in New South Wales. For markets using the NSWOP for settlement purposes, bet365 will apply the prices from the NSWOP regardless of any other publications differing.

In the absence of an SOP (for Horse Racing taking place in other states), bet365 will apply the Official Price supplied by Dynamic Odds for settlement purposes in relation to relevant markets. This price is applied regardless of any other publications differing.

The 3 Australian TABs refer to the NSW TAB, SuperTAB and UTAB. Home State TAB refers to the State TAB in which the meeting is run. For example, Flemington is SuperTAB, Randwick is NSW TAB, Doomben is UTAB.

For races run in Asia, the home tote will be deemed to be SuperTAB. Should SuperTAB not cover the meeting, the next largest Australian TAB that covered the race will be deemed to be the home tote. Should an Australian TAB not operate on an Asian race the home country’s totalisator will be deemed to be the home tote.
