2017 Edward Manifold Stakes Results: Bring Me Roses onto VRC Oaks

2017 Edward Manifold Stakes Results: Bring Me Roses onto VRC Oaks

Top trainer of three-year-olds this season Tony McEvoy enjoyed a Flemington win on Turnbull Stakes Day with his progressive filly Bring Me Roses running the ideal early VRC Oaks lead-up in the Edward Manifold Stakes 2017. High Chaparral filly Bring Me Roses went into Saturday’s Group 2 $200,000 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) a maiden and…

Held during the famous Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the 2017 Crown Oaks, registered as the VRC Oaks, is the leading event for three-year-old fillies and is their equivalent of the Victoria Derby held five days earlier on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Taking place on the first Thursday of November, the Crown Oaks is held exactly two days after the Melbourne Cup every year at Flemington Racecourse.

This Group 1 event is one of the most lucrative races for fillies in the country with stakes set at over $1 million. The Crown Oaks is raced over 2500m and the competing three-year-olds all carry set weights of 55.5kg. As the feature race of Crown Oaks Day it attracts much attention from the spectators and punters. Crown Oaks Day itself is also known as “Ladies Day” and sees the Fashions on the Field competition take place, ensuring a large crowd attendance each year.

Crown Oaks 2017
Date: November 9th, 2017, 2017
Racecourse: Flemington Racecourse
Distance: 2500m
Conditions: Three-year-old Fillies at Set Weights (55.5kg)
Status: Group 1
Prize Money: $1 million
Inaugurated: 1861

A traditional lead-up race to the Crown Oaks 2017 is the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) held the week before, and the Wakeful Stakes winner often continues on to claim victory or at least place in the Crown Oaks. Other good races to watch earlier on, if you are interested in taking advantage of the more generous betting odds offered on the fillies for the Crown Oaks before the running of the Wakeful Stakes, include the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) or the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m). Both of these races are often used as a final lead up to the Oaks for the runners.

The 2500m distance of the Crown Oaks often proves difficult for the lower quality fillies, and the winner is more often than not an elite turf champion. Notable winners include Samantha Miss (2008), Miss Finland (2006), Special Harmony (2003) and Magical Miss (2001).
