Friday’s NSW Oaks Final Preview

Friday’s NSW Oaks Final Preview

This Friday, February 12, Harold Park is gearing up to host the next brilliant pacing feature on the Australian harness calendar, the $100 000 Group 1 NSW Oaks (2160m).

Eleven brilliant fillies are engaged for the 2160m mobile start feature including last-start winners Stunin Girl, Led Suitcase and the Peter Lewis-trained Lady Euthenia.

Stunin Girl is coming off three successive victories and has further improved her stocks for Friday’s final after securing barrier one in the draw.

The Lisa Miles trained and driven Led Suitcase has drawn wider and was originally due to start from the backrow in eight, but the scratching of Sixteen Carat has seen them move up to seven. Meanwhile Lady Euthenia fared the worst of the three with barrier 11 but now moves up to ten.

An Art Major filly, Lady Euthenia is the leading stakes earner of all the NSW Oaks rivals, with over $300 000 in prizemoney. She also boasts an imposing winning strike rate having won 13 of her 16 starts.

Im A Happy Girl is another one of the most experienced pacers on the field with 11 wins from 18 career starts to her name. Im A Happy Girl starts from six on Friday night.

The 2010 Form 700 NSW Oaks is set to run as race five on the night’s bumper eight-race card due to jump at 9:00pm (NSW time).

The other group pacing feature on Friday night will be held at Gloucester Park in WA, the $35 000 Group 3 Lord Mayor’s Cup.
