Each year on the Thursday following the Melbourne Cup, the Kennedy Oaks winner emerges as the leading three-year-old staying filly of the season. But punters should know there is also excellent money to be made off the Kennedy Oaks runner-up through a Kennedy Oaks Quinella bet.
A Quinella bet allows you to select the first and second place-getters in a race, and as the runners can finish in either order for the bet to pay out, a Quinella is one of the most popular betting options on the Group 1 $1 million VRC Oaks (2500m) at Flemington Racecourse each November.
There are often two close favourites in the Kennedy Oaks betting markets, making a Quinella an ideal option for punters that equally favour two fillies in the field.
As an example, the winning 2023 VRC Oaks Quinella was:
1st – #2 Zardozi ($2.70 favourite)
2nd – #8 Aethelflaed
The great thing about the Quinella bet is that if Aethelflaed had been able to hold on and defeat shorter-priced winner Zardozi in the Kennedy Oaks results then punters that had the two in a Quinella would still have been paid out!
How to Pick the Kennedy Oaks Quinella
With so many earlier fillies’ features held in the lead-up to the Kennedy Oaks every Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, punters are given plenty of indications when it comes to picking the Kennedy Oaks Quinella.
A Kennedy Oaks Quinella is a far easier betting option to pick correctly than a Kennedy Oaks Exacta, as it doesn’t matter in which order your two selected runners finish.
With the Kennedy Oaks favourites winning more often than not in the $1 million feature, it is always a top tip to include the filly at the top of the betting markets into your Kennedy Oaks Quinella.
For more value, and based on the recent Kennedy Oaks Results, a trend also seems to be including another runner at double-figure odds into your Quinealla with the favourite.
Where to Place a Kennedy Oaks Quinella
If you are considering putting down a Quinella on this year’s Kennedy Oaks, don’t waste your time and money doing it at the out-of-date betting agencies.
