Lead Up Races

In addition to checking the Crown Oaks odds, punters can get a good idea of which runner is primed for the race by reviewing the lead up races to the main event. The most significant lead up race to the Crown Oaks is the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes. The Wakeful Stakes is also run at Flemington a couple of days earlier at Derby Day. Run over a distance of 2000 meters, the race is open to three-year-old fillies which who will most likely compete at the Crown Oaks Day.

Before the final field has been announced and before the barrier draw has taken place, the Crown Oaks odds will be set according to recent performances at lead up races. Once the barrier draw takes place, the odds tend to change in relation to the barrier number. Punters who placed fixed odds bets before the race will be paid out the same odds no matter how much the odds increase or decrease before the race.
