Where To Find A VRC Oaks Form Guide

How To Read A Kennedy Oaks Form Guide

Note that not every Kennedy Oaks form guide is laid out the same. Depending on which online bookmaker you choose, you will have to adapt to structure of the form. However, most form guides will use the same abbreviations and the same terminology.

The following information can be found on most Kennedy Oaks form guides and will help you make smarter choices when betting on this great race.

Barrier: The barrier is the starting position of your selection and is usually found in brackets behind the horse name. The further from the inside rail that the barrier is, the harder it will be for the horse starting from their to get to the head of the pack. It’s less important in long races like the Kennedy Oaks and recent winners from a wide Kennedy Oaks barrier draw include Kirramosa (10 of 10 in 2013), Dear Demi (12 of 15 in 2012) and Personal (10 of 14 in 2020).

Form/Last 6: This is a series of numbers listed behind a horse’s name, which designate the places the horse recorded in its past six career starts. The very right number stands for the horse’s most recent race.

The form is given in numbers from 0-9. 1 to 9 indicates the horse’s finishing position, with 0 meaning the horse finished worse than 9th place. Other symbols may also be seen (‘x’ means the horse had a break, for instance) but the detailed horse entries on the best online betting sites mean you may as well read the full race report rather than struggle to interpret the symbols in the form.

Age and Sex: All of the runners in the Kennedy Oaks field are three-year-old fillies. Sometimes listed as 3YO F on the form guide.

Pedigree: A horse’s pedigree can tell you a lot about its natural ability as a runner. You can use online databases to research the performances of a runner’s sire (male ancestor) and dam (female ancestor), which will give clues to your selection’s abilities.

Career: This section will list all of a horse’s career starts and results. It’s the section that will tell you the most about whether or not your selection is a consistently strong performer. Make sure to compare the distances of the races in which your selection has done well, to see whether the distance of the Kennedy Oaks suits your runner.

Saddlecloth Number: This is the number of your horse, which you might need to place the bet and which also helps you keep track of your selection during the race.

Trainer: It’s always helpful to know who has trained your selection for the Kennedy Oaks. It is advisable to bet on runners trained by greats of the sport, as a trainer’s experience will always reflect on the performance of the horse.

Weight: This section tells you how much weight your horse will be carrying during the race. The Kennedy Oaks is run at set weights, so this statistic does not really matter in this race.

Track Conditions: There are six different track conditions: Fast, Good, Dead, Slow, Heavy and Wet. Check out your selections race history to see which conditions best work for your horse of choice, this will help you calculate your selection’s chances of an Kennedy Oaks victory.

Jockey: Many successful racehorses have regular jockeys who often stay with them throughout their career. Although it is no guarantee, a jockey who knows his mount well will be able to better guide it through the race. Also, horses may feel more confident under a rider they are familiar with and might consequently give a stronger performance. Check the horse’s career statistics to find out whether the jockey has ridden the horse before, and how successfully he has done so.
