2013 Melbourne Cup Carnival: Crown Oaks
November 06, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Victoria Racing Club will host the Crown Oaks as part of the Melbourne Cup Carnival festivities. The Crown Oaks is the featured race on the 9-race slate at the Flemington Racecourse.

The Crown Oaks is a Group 1 race for three-year old fillies run over 2500 metres. The race winner will pocket A$1 million cash prize and a crystal winner's trophy. The race will start at 15:40PM local time.

May's Dream and Kirramosa are among the race entrees in the Crown Oaks. May's Dream placed second behind last Saturday's Wakeful Stakes winner Kirramosa. Both fillies will try to outdo each other again on a Group 1 race.

The horse race handicappers have installed Kirramosa as the favorite to win the Crown Oaks. May's Dream and Zanbagh are among her worthy challengers in this race.
