‘the ultimate style day’
Traditionally known as ‘ladies day’, the third day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival is Crown Oaks Day. This is the 'ultimate style day' of the Carnival, when women take the opportunity to express their own signature style.
It is the day when women of all ages come together dressed in their most feminine ensemble. This is the time for cosmetic bloom, romantic looks and delicate fabrics. Be it mothers and daughters, aunts and nieces, sisters, or simply friends, Crown Oaks Day is truly a time for women to connect and enjoy the 'ultimate style day'.
Whether it is just for fun, or for the lure of fame and prizes in Myer Fashions on the Field, Flemington becomes awash of colour on Crown Oaks Day as it also hosts one of the world’s great outdoor fashion events. The winner of the national competition of Myer Fashions on the Field is announced on Crown Oaks Day, reinforcing its importance on the fashion calendar.
Visitors to Flemington on the Carnival’s third day should remember to wear a pink rose, the official flower of Crown Oaks Day.
The racing highlight is the Group 1 Crown Oaks, a $1 million classic for three-year-old fillies over 2500m.
12.20pm; 1.00; 1.40; 2.20; 3.00; 3.40; 4.25; 5.05; 5.45.
