Oakwood Lands The Money In Start Number 50

Tough Hawkesbury mare Oakwood Lady defied a distance doubt to clinch back-to-back wins at Queanbeyan on Monday, at her 50th start. In the process, she gave trainer Scott Singleton his fourth success of the new season.

Singleton had scored at home with Adjective (August 3) and Cambage (August 24), and then with Oakwood Lady at Mudgee on September 3. But he had his concerns his six-year-old mare could manage the 1460m of the Benchmark 55 Handicap. She had not previously raced beyond 1350m when runner-up at Cessnock in January.

“I was concerned about the distance, but they run downhill at Queanbeyan from the 350m,” Singleton said. “This mare can be in and out of form, and her benchmark rating dropped down to give her a chance to win a couple more races. When she is in form, she is always a chance and it’s great to win two more races for her owners.”

With Brendan Ward aboard, Oakwood Lady ($4.40) was caught deep before the home turn but moved up menacingly to join the leaders. She sustained a strong run out in the centre of the track down the running to defeat Hercegovka ($6) and $3.80 favourite Singled Out.

Oakwood Lady’s 50th appearance resulted in her fifth victory; her previous wins being at Port Macquarie (March 6, 2015), Tamworth (March 31, 2015) and Orange (April 1, 2016) before her latest pair. She has also been placed on 18 occasions, earning her owners more than $108,000 in prizemoney. Singleton later also finished second at Queanbeyan, with Miss Breffni ($12).
