Exciting Lineup for the Historic Queensland Oaks 2024

Queensland Oaks has long been one of the pinnacle races of the Brisbane Winter Carnival, a historic Group 1 for fillies and Kurrinda Bloodstock Syndications can make owning a potential runner in races like this a reality

Queensland Oaks News:

Melbourne Cup-winning owner Brae Sokolski fancies his chances of claiming the Group 1 double of the Queensland Derby and Queensland Oaks.

But not necessarily with the horse that you might expect in The Queensland Oaks.

Sokolski is in the ownership of last Saturday’s dominant Derby destroyer Warmonger and now has Kiwi Molly Bloom and Chris Waller‘s improving Sydneysider Mare Of Mt Buller in Saturday’s Group 1 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm.

Bookies have Molly Bloom, who will head to Waller for the spring, as the $4.80 second pick in The Queensland Oaks behind Waller’s favourite Scarlet Oak ($3.30).

Mare Of Mount Buller, who charged home to finish a narrow runner-up to Scarlet Oak in the Group 2 The Roses over 2000m, is rated an $8.50 chance for The Queensland Oaks over 2200m.

Sokolski, however, has high confidence that Mare Of Mt Buller is the one to beat.

“I’m in (the ownership) of Molly Bloom, but I’m more confident with Mare Of Mt Buller,” Sokolski told Racenet.

“Molly Bloom has had a number of grand finals and having her peak again is a very big ask.

“She is a proper Group 1 quality filly, but Mare Of Mt Buller is the one I’m more confident in.

“She was every bit as good as the favourite (Scarlet Oak) the other day.

“I always focus on the last little bit of a race, especially when you are talking about a horse stepping up in ground.

“Mare Of Mt Buller was so powerful in the last 50m and through the line.

“I honestly thought it was the best Oaks trial out of the Roses and I wouldn’t swap her for any other horse in The Queensland Oaks.”

Mare Of Mt Buller is named in connection with a Victorian ski resort.

One of her co-owners, Jonathan Rosham, has a mate who is known as the “Mayor Of Mt Buller” given he spends a lot of time there.

Sokolski and Rosham were initially going to buy a colt and call it “Mayor Of Mt Buller” but gave the name a female twist when they purchased a filly.

“We have thought she was an Queensland Oaks prospect from the day she won her maiden back in December at Kembla,” Sokolski said.

“We have always thought she had that upside.

“It was a matter of trying to hold her together, given effectively we realised she would have to do it on her first preparation.

“We originally targeted the Australian Oaks (won by Autumn Angel) but she had a setback which meant she was going to be underprepared for that race.

“She ran in the Vinery but just didn’t have the miles in her legs to get to the Australian Oaks so we aimed at the Queensland Oaks.

“That’s why she was freshened up for Queensland Oaks.

“She looks better now than she has done at any stage for the Queensland Oaks.”

Meanwhile, Sokolski described last Saturday’s 10.4 length Queensland Derby romp by Warmonger as “frightening.”

He said the sky was the limit for the gelding wouldn’t even need to improve ahead of the 2024 Caulfield Cup, for which he is now the $15 equal favourite.

“I am hoping to take out both the Queensland Derby and Queensland Oaks – people don’t really associate me with being involved in an OTI-owned horse but I am fortunate enough to own a share in Warmonger,” Sokolski said.

“The difference with this horse to virtually any other Derby winner this century, and I’m not exaggerating, he not only doesn’t have to improve to win a Caulfield Cup, he can almost go backwards and win a Caulfield Cup.

Queensland Oaks:

American business tycoon John Stewart has pulled a Group 1 shock in the Queensland Oaks, revealing he has scratched his $3.2m filly Tutta La Vita and will send her to his homeland instead.

The Kentucky-based businessman, who famously went to $9m to buy Winx’s Piero filly earlier this year, told Tutta La Vita’s last two runs have not been up to scratch and has aspirations to run her at the Breeders’ Cup in November this year at Del Mar instead.

The Chris Waller filly was one of an army of Queensland Oaks runners for the champion trainer, but has now had her last run for him.

The big spending Stewart splashed $3.2m to buy Tutta La Vita at the Inglis Chairman’s Sale last month, who became the first horse in Australia to wear his black and blue Resolute Racing colours.

“We think Tutta La Vita can benefit from some rest,”

“Her last couple of races have not been up to expectations and we think there are some nice turf races in the US beginning this summer that we would like to target for her.”

When asked if the showcase Breeders’ Cup meeting, which has a slew of big money races on, was on the cards, Stewart said: “That’s the plan.”

The move was made with Waller’s support, with the trainer set to receive a number of Resolute Racing horses in the future.

Stewart said he wanted to target the looming spring carnival with a number of horses, who would make their way Down Under from America.

“We also have some horses in the US that we think will add some excitement in Australia that we will be sending down to be ready for the spring races,” he said.

Tutta La Vita will finish her career in Australia with $521,000 in prizemoney after only managing to run eighth in the Group 2 The Roses at Doomben last month behind boom filly Scarlet Oak.

It leaves Waller with at least five runners in the Queensland Oaks race, along with two emergencies.

Scarlet Oak is a dominant $3.60 favourite for the Queensland Oaks, with Kiwi raider Molly Bloom a $5 second elect.

With their expertise, potential owners have the opportunity to be part of the exhilarating world of horse racing, and possibly see their horse compete in prestigious events like the Group 1 Queensland Oaks.

This piece will delve into how Kurrinda Bloodstock makes this possible, their meticulous selection process for fillies aimed at high-profile races, the benefits of ownership through their syndicate, and their recent successes with fillies such as Malaboom and Satin Stiletto.

Selecting Fillies for Prestigious Races like the Queensland Oaks

Detailed Pedigree Analysis

Kurrinda Bloodstock employs a rigorous selection process when choosing fillies, particularly those targeted for prestigious races like the Queensland Oaks. Pedigree analysis is a critical component of this process.

Temperament and Trainability

A horse’s temperament and trainability are equally important in the selection process. Kurrinda Bloodstock seeks fillies that are not only physically capable but also possess a calm, focused, and willing disposition.

A horse that is easy to handle and train is more likely to reach its full potential on the track. This careful consideration of temperament ensures that the fillies selected can cope with the rigors of training and racing.
