The Kennedy Oaks odds on the three-year-old fillies’ feature run on the third day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington Racecourse on a Thursday in early to mid-November are available weeks in advance of the race.
Futures Kennedy Oaks odds and betting is popular with punters looking for value on the possible Kennedy Oaks runners.
Waiting for the release of the Kennedy Oaks field means the odds you lock in are likely shorter, but it is a safer bet with the fillies confirmed to run in the $1 million feature.
VRC Oaks odds favour fillies coming off good runs in the traditional lead-up races like the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) three days earlier on Derby Day with Willowy (2021), Miami Bound (2019) and Aristia (2018) all completing the Wakeful – Oaks double and the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) run on Caulfield Cup Day, the latter producing the 2017 VRC Oaks winner Pinot who did the double.
Zardozi (2nd in 2023) was the last VRC Oaks winner to come via a lead-up run in the Wakeful Stakes on Derby Day.
Willowy ($3.70 in 2021), She’s Extreme ($2.30 in 2022) and Zardozi ($2.70 in 2023) – all three prepared by members of the Cummings’ family – are the latest favourites at the shortest-priced Kennedy Oaks odds that year to win.
