2017 VRC Oaks Results
- 1st: #4 Pinot
- 2nd: #3 Bring Me Roses
- 3rd: #6 Hiyaam
The VRC Crown Oaks field attracts a field of very talented fillies each year. As one of the premier targets for the upper echelon of three year olds, the Crown Oaks is one of the most exciting contests held during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. A victory in the Crown Oaks usually sees a filly go on to an immensely successful racing career, and for this reason the race is watched closely.
The Crown Oaks Field, also known as the VRC Oaks Field or the Kennedy Oaks Field, attracts gun three-year-old fillies coming off lead-up runs in spring races including the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) on Caulfield Cup Day, a race the 2017 VRC Oaks winner Pinot won on way to her Group 1 success, and the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) held just three days earlier on Victoria Derby Day.
Check out our Crown Oaks betting page for more tips on which fillies to back and sack in the $1 million staying showdown this spring.

The official 2017 VRC Crown Oaks Field or Kennedy Oaks 2017 Field drew just a dozen fillies led by odds-on favourite Aloisia for Aaron Purcell who won the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) before running over the colts and geldings in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day.
