The tradition of Kennedy Oaks Day is beauty, femininity, style and grace. It’s a day that the racegoer can embrace wonderment and escape the normal of a week day. The style is not just for the females, the men also take it up a notch, making it one of the best days of the year for men to dress up and explore fashion.
Kennedy Oaks Day's significance on the fashion calendar is further reinforced with the crowning of the Myer Fashions on the Field Women’s Racewear national winner.
The racing highlight is the $1 million Group 1 Kennedy Oaks, which will see the best three-year-old fillies battle for victory in the ultimate test of their staying credentials.
