The 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.
