Irish Oaks History

The Irish Oaks is a Group One race open to three-year-old fillies run over one mile and four furlongs at the Curragh.

Established in 1895 the Irish Oaks attracts a star-studded field from both the UK & Ireland with many runners contesting both the English Oaks in June and the Irish equivalent in July. 

Several runners have managed to win both the English and Irish Oaks since its inauguration with Masaka first managing the feat in 1948, whilst more recently the classy Ouija Board achieved victory in both in 2004 and Snow Fairy, who stormed to success in 2010.

In recent years Aidan O'Brien has been the trainer to watch out for as the Ballydoyle supremo notched up a trio of successes in 2006, 2007 and 2008 with Alexandrova, Peeping Fawn and Moonstone respectively.

However, O'Brien has a long way to catch up Sir Michael Stoute in the leading trainer standings as the master of Freemason Lodge Stables has acquired six successes in the Irish Oaks since 1978.
