Spring Carnival – Oaks Day
Thursday, November 7 @ 11:15 am - 6:45 pm
The Crown Oaks Day is the third day of the most popular event on the spring horse racing calendar, the Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival. The crown Oaks day is raced at Flemington Racecourse. It boasts a great day of racing and of course boasts group 1 racing. Oaks is often regarded as Ladies day of the calendar, on the day some of the best fashions of the field can be seen.
The ‘Oaks’ race was first run back in 1861, and what makes this race unusual is that it was first run on a work day. To this day it is still one of the most popular events of the Spring carnival.
The title race of the day – Oaks, is a race for three year old fillies and is run over 2500m.
