The VRC Oaks Day celebrations - traditionally known as Ladies Day — brings out the very best in everything you love about the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
A fixture on Melbourne and Australia’s social and cultural calendar, VRC Oaks Day will see racegoers fuse both old and new in every way.
The signature event of the day is the Group 1 VRC Oaks, a classic for three-year-old fillies over 2500m, with $1 million in prize money and a coveted winner’s trophy.
Off the field, there’s just as much competition, excitement and colour, with the famous Myer Fashions in the Field competition and selection of the Women’s Racewear national winner.
VRC Oaks Day is the occasion for glamour, fashion and friends to mix in a relaxed but elegant atmosphere, a most stylish day surrounded by manicured gardens, fine dining and beautiful marquees.
Join the celebration this year at the VRC Oaks Day, on Thursday 9 November 2017.
The official flower for VRC Oaks Day is the Pink Rose
