Kennedy Oaks Day

Thursday, 5 November

This year all the style, elegance, sophistication and beauty of Kennedy Oaks Day was beamed into homes around Australia.

Champion jockey Damien Oliver recorded a remarkable sixth victory in the Group 1 Kennedy Oaks when blueblood filly Personal won the $1 million staying classic for three-year-old fillies. Oliver was now just one Group 1 win off equalling Bobby Lewis’ record of 23 Group 1 wins over Cup Week.

The VRC and Network 10 acknowledged racing legends Graham Salisbury and 1992 Melbourne Cup winner Subzero before the running of the all-greys race, the Off the Track Subzero Handicap. Four grey gallopers crossing the line together was some spectacle, with Berdibek taking home the race named in honour of Subzero.

The Myer Fashions on your Front Lawn National Final culminated with the Northern Territory reigning supreme, taking out both the Mens and Womens National Final. Christine Spielmann won the Womens National Competition while Sherlon Garbo took out the first ever Mens National Competition. Both Christine and Sherlon have received more than $80,000 in prizes each, including a brand new Lexus UX250h 2WD Sports Luxury.

Continuing the impressive lineup of Cup Week entertainment, Contemporary Country Rocker Casey Barnes performed his latest smash ‘Bright Lights’ from the beautiful hinterland of NSW. Pop songstress Kate Miller-Heidke performed her hypnotic current hit ‘Little Roots, Little Shoots’, pre-recorded at the Birdcage set at Flemington.
