Flemington | 2500m | Group 1 | Set weight | $1,000,000Thursday, 3rd November 2016
Held on what is widely known as Ladie’s Day, the Crown Oaks is where fillies of both two and four-legged kinds get an opportunity to strut their stuff. In fact, it’s the most respected filly-only race of the spring. Held on day three of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington Racecourse, Crown Oaks is the biggest jewel on the day’s card, with a $1 million purse (*prizemoney, not Prada) up for grabs. Restricted to three-year-old fillies and run over 2500m, the Oaks is the female equivalent of the Derby.
While it doesn’t have a list of champion winners like some of the other classics over the spring carnival, there have been a select few fillies who won the Oaks before going on to become champion mares, including: Surround, Evening Peal, Rose Of Kingston, Light Fingers, Miss Finland and Mosheen.
