Kennedy Oaks Betting

The VRC Oaks,  now known as the Kennedy Oaks for sponsorship purposes, is held only two days after the iconic Melbourne Cup on the first Thursday of November as the Group 1 feature of Ladies Day at Flemington Racecourse.

Kennedy Oaks betting still attracts plenty of attention, although most of the money spent punting during the spring is obviously on the iconic Melbourne Cup Field.

Betting on the VRC Oaks is dominated by three-year-old fillies with staying potential coming off key lead-up races including the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) against the boys on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day and the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Derby Day three days before VRC Oaks Day.

Favourites in VRC Oaks betting saluted four times from 2008 – 2019 most recently with Kirramosa (2013). The biggest roughie in VRC Oaks betting to salute in recent history was Lasqueti Spirit ($101 in 2016).

2020 Kennedy Oaks Betting Market

The Kennedy Oaks 2020 betting markets and Kennedy Oaks odds for 2020 will be released closer to the 2020 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

There are many different ways to bet on the Kennedy Oaks. While some bets – like the Kennedy Oaks exotic bets – may be a little confusing for an unexperienced punter, there are plenty of standard bets that are quickly understood and easy to place. If you are new to the game of Kennedy Oaks betting, you might want to start with these simpler betting options:

Win – In a win bet you place a stake on a selection to win the Kennedy Oaks. This is a simple bet that can offer a decent payout if a roughie wins the Kennedy Oaks, but it’s not too lucrative if you are betting on a favourite.

Place – A place bet is the perfect bet for the new punter. In a place bet you select a horse to come first, second or third in the Kennedy Oaks – giving you three chances to win rather than one.

Each-Way – An each way bet incorporates two bets on just one horse. Select one horse and place both a win bet and a place bet on them in the Kennedy Oaks. This means you receive two payouts if your selection comes first, and still collect some winnings if your selection comes in second or third.

Kennedy Oaks Exotic Bets

Well-practised punters will tell you that the best way to collect big bucks with your Kennedy Oaks betting is to place some exotic bets. We realise that exotic Kennedy Oaks betting can seem complicated to inexperienced bettors and have come up with some simple explanations for the most common exotic bets. Check out our guides and start your Kennedy Oaks betting with style and confidence!

Kennedy Oaks Quinella

For a winning Kennedy Oaks quinella, you have to determine the first two horses to cross the line – however, the order in which they arrive is not important. As long as your two runners of choice are the first horses home, you win this bet.

Kennedy Oaks Exacta

A Kennedy Oaks Exacta works similar to a Kennedy Oaks quinella. However, in a Kennedy Oaks exacta you must pick the horses in the exact order of arrival. This makes the Kennedy Oaks exacta a difficult bet to win, but in turn it does offer a substantially larger payout than a winning Kennedy Oaks quinella.

Kennedy Oaks Trifecta

To win a Kennedy Oaks Trifecta you have to pick the first three runners across the finish line in the exact order of arrival. A Kennedy Oaks Trifecta is considered a massive achievement within the betting community if you can pull it off.

Kennedy Oaks First Four

For a successful Kennedy Oaks First Four, you must pick the first four finishers in their exact order. As getting the order exact is quite difficult, many punters choose to place this as a box bet that covers all combinations of their chosen runners. The easiest way to place a boxed Kennedy Oaks First Four bet is at an online betting site like Ladbrokes.com.au, which even allows you to set a total price for you First Four bet!
