HOW TO BET ON THE VRC KENNEDY OAKS

There are plenty of betting options on the VRC Kennedy Oaks.

Betting options include:

Win Bets

Exactly as it sounds, a Win bet is betting on a single horse to win the race.

Place Bets

Betting for the place generally pays around one quarter of the win odds and covers three placings with your horse having to finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd to be successful.

Each-Way Bets

Half your stake on the Win and half your stake on the Place is an each-way bet. For example: $20 each-way gives you $10 on the win and $10 on the Place.

Quinella & Exacta

Picking the first two horses past the post will give you the Quinella or Exacta. The difference between the two is with a Quinella, your horses can finish in any order, and in an Exacta, your two runners must finish in the exact order you selected – unless you box them.

Trifecta

The first three horses past the post. You can select three horses in order or you can box three horses meaning they can finish in any order. Flexi Trifectas also give you the option to add more than three horses in any combination for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The cost of a flexi Trifecta is calculated by the amount of runners you have in each placing.

First 4

The first four horses past the past. Same rules apply as Trifectas with straight out First 4 in order, Boxed First 4 or Flexi First 4.

Same Race Multi

Some bookmakers give the option for a same race multi where you can select certain runners to finish 1st, Top 2, Top 3 and Top 4. Odds are displayed next to each horse for each betting option, and odds are combined in a multi bet. The best bookmakers to bet on VRC Kennedy Oaks for Same Race Multis include: Sportsbet, Ladbrokes & Neds.

Quadrella

The ‘Quaddie’ is one of the hardest bet types to land but can be very rewarding with massive returns. All Quaddie wagers go into a pool, and the money is shared out among winners. The bigger the odds of each winning leg, the more likely the Quaddie will pay more as more people are knocked out of the pool. To land the Quaddie, you need to select four winning horses in four selected races. You can have one runner per leg or multiple runners, but the more runners you have, the more it costs to place the Quaddie bet. Flexi options allow punters to place large Quaddies but take a smaller percentage for a smaller outlay.

VRC Oaks History

The VRC Oaks is a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies that takes place during the Melbourne Spring Carnival.

The race, known as the Kennedy Oaks, is run over 2500 metres at Flemington Racecourse and carries prizemoney of $1,000,000.

Oaks Day, or Ladies Day as it has come to be known, is the third day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival and is held on the Thursday after the Cup.

The Oaks has a history equal to the Cup, dating back to 1861 when Palestine won the inaugural running of the race. Until 1972, it was run over 12 furlongs (or close to 2400 metres) until it was extended to the 2500 metre distance it is today.

The blue ribbon event attracts the best staying fillies across the country and is the females equivalent to the Victoria Derby for colts and geldings which is run on the previous Saturday and is also run over 2500 metres.

The race has had some top line fillies salute the judge including the mighty Light Fingers (1964), Surround (1976), Rose Of Kingston (1981), Research (1988) and more recently, Miss Finland (2006), Samantha Miss (2008), Dear Demi (2012) and Jameka (2015).

The future of fillies winning the Oaks has varied in recent years. Some go on to continue racing whereas others pursue a breeding career at stud.

The last Oaks winner to go on and win the Melbourne Cup the following year was Light Fingers in 1964.
