2nd – #5 Salto Angel
How to Pick a Kennedy Oaks Exacta
Picking the Kennedy Oaks Exacta relies on punters having a good knowledge of the VRC Oaks field, the form of the contenders and understanding the results of previous Kennedy Oaks.
For example, favourites have a fairly good recent record in the Kennedy Oaks with the shortest-priced filly in Kennedy Oaks betting saluting for the punters five times in the between 2006 – 2020.
Keep in mind too that until the shock 2016 upset Kennedy Oaks results by Lasqueti Spirit ($101), no other Kennedy Oaks winner had jumped at double-figures since Bulla Borghese ($12 in 2002) so putting a single-figure chance on top in the Kennedy Oaks exacta is the best tip.
So betting on the favourite to win and then adding another longer-priced contender into the Exacta based on lead-up form in earlier fillies’ features such as the Wakeful Stakes is a top way to pick the Kennedy Oaks Exacta.
