Gondokoro Wins 2013 Queensland Oaks – Race Results

June 3rd, 2013

Gondokoro has won the Group 1 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm Racecourse last Saturday June 1, 2013.

The three-year-old won the race by three lengths ahead of Miss Zenella, who finished second, and Vaquera, who passed the post in third position.

Godokoro has now won two of her 13 race starts and has earned more than $417,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.

Trainer Pat Carey was at the track to see Gondokoro win the $400,000 Queensland Oaks.

While Gondokoro is nominated for the Group 1 Queensland Derby this Saturday, Carey has not yet decided whether to back her up in the race.

“She’s a very strong staying filly and she can only improve in time as she furnishes out and develops,” Carey said.

“We’re focused on the autumn with her but we’ll see what (owner) Trevor (Delroy) wants to do with her in the spring, but we’ve still got a lot of time to develop her and we’ll try and use that properly.

“I thought it was just a perfect ride.

“We won’t make any sort of plans until we sit down and let the dust settle and that’s always been our method of operation.”

Gondokoro was ridden by jockey Rhys McLeod in the 2013 Queensland Oaks.

“From barrier one we needed a bit of luck, and we got it, but in saying that she made it easy for me,” he said.
