140th Kentucky Oaks

Kentucky is known for its bluegrass and thoroughbred racing. The very first Kentucky Oaks took place on May 19th, 1875 and was founded by Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr. It was initially modeled after the famed British Epsom Oaks. The Kentucky Derby and the Oaks hold the record as the oldest continuously contested sporting events in history that still take place on their site of origin.

Think pink for fashion at the Oaks in honor of the official race flower, the Stargazer Lily. This year’s competition will also welcome back the Kentucky Oaks Fashion Contest and the Survivors Parade, which will lead off the race.
The 140th Kentucky Oaks contenders will be: Untapable, Sugar Shock, Fashion Pate, My Miss Sophia, Rosalind, Got Lucky, Aurelia’s Belle, Ria Antonia, Kiss Moon, FiftyShadesofGold, Unbridled Forever, Thank you Marylou and Empress Of Midway, subject to change prior to the race.
