Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing of the spring carnival, the feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby, worth over A$1.5 million, is Australia’s premier staying classic for three year olds. Off the track, the fashion stakes are equally impressive, thanks to the Myer Fashions on the Field competition for both men and women.

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 A$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.
