Kennedy Oaks First Four

With the Group 1 $1 million VRC Oaks (2500m) contested by an elite field of three-year-old fillies during the Melbourne Cup Carnival every year, punters may be hard-pressed to pick their favourite to win, which is where the Kennedy Oaks First Four betting option comes in!

The Kennedy Oaks First Four wager gives punters the chance to enjoy one of the largest winning payouts of all the betting options available, making it a hugely popular choice on Kennedy Oaks Day at bookmakers around the country like Ladbrokes.com.au.

A First Four bet requires you to choose the first, second, third and fourth placegetters in the correct finishing order for a race.

For example, the 2020 VRC Oaks First Four was:

1st #2 Personal ($6)

2nd #5 Salto Angel ($21)

3rd #1 Montefilia ($1.80)

4th #6 Miravalle ($5.50)

How to Pick the Kennedy Oaks First Four

As profitable as placing the winning Kennedy Oaks First Four is, punters should keep in mind that your selections must run in the exact order you indicate for your First Four bet to pay out.

For example, in 2020 if Montefilia had snuck in ahead of the runner-up Salto Angel swapping the order of the second and third placegetters, then the First Four placed on them would not win.

If you are worried that a First Four could be a little tricky to pick, then we recommend Boxing your First Four bet.

With a Box First Four, you can add or ‘box’ more runners into your bet, covering all possible combinations for the finishing order, taking the worry out of your wagers!

You can box as many runners from the Kennedy Oaks field as you like into your First Four, but the more you add into the bet the more money it will cost you to place.

Things to consider that will help you pick the Kennedy Oaks First Four:

  • Always include the favourite in your bet as odds-on favourites have a commanding record in the Kennedy Oaks
  • Watch for the dominant runners in earlier fillies’ features at the spring carnival to give you a heads up
  • Held the week before on Victoria Derby Day, the Wakeful Stakes has been an excellent guide to the Kennedy Oaks producing more winners in the Group 1 in the past 30 years than any other lead-up
