CLICK HERE TO BET ON THE 2023 VRC OAKS FINAL FIELD 

The VRC Oaks field – currently known as the Kennedy Oaks Field – attracts a field of very talented fillies each year. As one of the premier targets for the upper echelon of three year olds, the Kennedy Oaks is one of the most exciting contests held during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. A victory in the Kennedy Oaks usually sees a filly go on to an immensely successful racing career, and for this reason the race is watched closely.

The Kennedy Oaks Field, also known as the VRC Oaks Field and previously the Crown Oaks Field, attracts gun three-year-old fillies coming off lead-up runs in spring races including the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) on Caulfield Cup Day, a race the 2017 VRC Oaks winner Pinot won on way to her Group 1 success, and the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) held just three days earlier on Victoria Derby Day. Willowy (2021) is the latest filly to win the Wakeful Stakes – VRC Oaks double on the quick back-up. 

Check out our Kennedy Oaks betting page for more tips on which fillies to back and sack in the $1 million staying showdown this spring.

2023 Kennedy Oaks Field

The 2023 VRC Oaks field is announced by Racing Victoria on the Monday before the race, the day before Melbourne Cup Day on the first Tuesday of November, and will be available in full below once released.

The Kennedy Oaks 2023 final field features a smart line-up of three-year-old fillies including Group 1 Flight Stakes winner Tropical Squall, the fellow Waterhouse/Bott-trained Amazonian Lass coming off a win in the Wakeful Stakes here and Godolpin’s eye-catching runner-up in the same key lead-up Zardozi
