The $80,000 Inglis Easter Yearling became the 12th filly in the past 30 years to complete the Wakeful - Oaks double etching her name into racing history.
Unbelievable scenes on course as Aristia's owners went nuts as the filly delivered Group 1 success.
The celebrations carried long into the night and will be sure to last many weeks as promises of taking the trophies on a tour of Australia were being made late into the night.
Huge thanks to so many people and while its unfair to single any out a quick note to her incredible Flemington team:
- Mat Ellerton & Simon Zahra
- unbelievable and so thoroughly deserved!!!!
- Damian Lane
- seriously... how bloody is good Damian Lane
- Damien Thorton
- has done so much great work on the filly and we can't thank him enough
- Team EZ
