YEAR: 1949


1949 NZ OAKS

Petro Star had the NZ Oaks field at her mercy a long way from home. Taken to the lead at the entrance to the straight for the first time round, she never afterwards looked in danger of defeat. She won unextended by two lengths. A brown filly by U Scott-Single Star, she had previously exhibited nervousness at the barrier, but racing and experience have had a beneficial effect, and once settled to her work on Saturday she raced very solidly. Single Star was a good class pacer by Nelson Derby from Queens Treasure, a grand-daughter of Norice (imp).

Roschana who finished second to Single Star is a bay filly bu U Scott-Kohua and gives every indication of developing good winning form. Kohua is by Jack Potts from Grace Dillon.

Lady Joss showed some ability to finish in third place. A member of M W Dickie's team at Springston, she is by Springfield Globe from Sunburst, by Travis Axworthy from Morning Glow.
