The Latest News on Australia’s 2021 Oakleigh Plate
By Space Coast Daily // February 24, 2021
The Oakleigh Plate is the Caulfield Racecourse premier sprint race held in Melbourne, Australia, every year. It is the second biggest race in the three-autumn sprint. The others being the Newmarket Handicap and Black Caviar Lightning. The race attracts many of the world’s best sprinters, with the highest representation coming from the Victorian contingent.
The race ran over 1100m in open handicap conditions, and the money prize for the race stands at $500,000. The race is suitable for runners with lower weights, fairly 60kgs.
A Brief History of the Oakleigh Plate
The race was first held in 1887 when Caulfield Racecourse started feeling confident in controlling the Victorian Amateur Turf Club.
Being one of Australia’s most recognised sprint races, the race was first won by a horse known as Malua. The horse won the Oakleigh carrying the enormous weight of 60kgs. After winning the plate, Malua went on with the same weight and won the Newmarket Handicap.
Almost all of the Oakleigh races have run at Caulfield except for two instances. The first was during the Second World War when Caulfield Racecourse had to be given to the military to accommodate the soldiers. During this time, the Oakleigh ran at Flemington.
The second instance was where the race ran at Sandown because of the development work carried out at Caulfield in 1997. That year Drum won the plate for trainer C Brindley.
