Paul Fitzpatrick has a fine record in the Nevele R Stud Newcastle Oaks having won the event three times in its ten year history. He has won the race with Village Swinger in 2004 with Blake in the sulky, Protikori won it in 2006 and she also won the Derby that year and I'm Insatiable won in 2010.

Fitzpatrick has two very good chances to win on Friday night with Ocean Diva with Blake in the sulky and My Sweet Pawsha for Gavin. Nevele R Stud has sponsored the Newcastle Oaks for ten years straight.

"Like our Derby sponsor, Mark Colin packaging, Nevele R Stud has been the only sponsor of the Newcastle Oaks since we reintroduced the race in 1994," said Newcastle CEO Ross Gigg.

"Their support has been fantastic and I'm sure most people around the country side know Nevele R Corner at Newcastle which is at the 400 metres mark."

It's very even field of three year old fillies. Two horses will fly the flag for the locals in Mother Kym for trainer Shane Tritton and Gee Tee Wage for Gerry Osborn.

Thirty people will attend the Paceway on Friday night as guests of Nevele R Stud.

The Nevele R Stud Newcastle Oaks will start at 8.15pm and is the first leg of the quadrella.
