Horse racing is very popular in Australia and the rest of the world in terms of online betting, and every major event of this type in this country attracts thousands of spectators from all over, and millions of online punters in a less visible capacity.
For Australians, and many international online punters, one of the biggest and best horse races of the year is the Crown Oaks Day race. This event is also sometimes referred to as Ladies Day, and is run on the Spring Carnival’s third day, at the Flemington Race Course in Melbourne, Australia, covering a distance of 2 500 metres. The race is open only to three-year old fillies and set-weight conditions apply, and besides being able to offer more than one million dollars in prize money, also sets the stage for the famous Fashion on the Field affair.
The events leading up to the Crown Oaks Day race are almost as exciting as the main event, and consist of the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes Races, also run at the Flemington Race Course a number of days before, on Derby Day. This race is also limited to three-year old fillies, and these animals will compete over a distance of 2 000 metres. This race can be seen as a preview, and offers punters the perfect opportunity to gauge the performance of the horses participating in this long-distance run. Many bettors look upon Wakeful Stakes as the best way to determine the ultimate placing of horses in the Crown Oaks Day race.
