Fifteen Fillies Set to Run in 138th Kentucky Oaks
The 138th Kentucky Oaks will be run today at Churchill Downs.
A field of 15 is entered for the fillies-only race.
Grace Hall is the early favorite and will run from post position number two. On Fire Baby and Broadway’s Alibi are co-second choices.
Last year’s Kentucky Oaks drew more than 110,000 fans to the track.
Again this year, Oaks Day will be used as a platform to raise awareness and money for cancers that affect women and their families. For the first time, Churchill Downs has a partnership with the group Stand Up to Cancer.
Oaks Day activities such as the Pink Out and the cancer survivors parade will continue.
Post time for the Kentucky Oaks is approximately 5:45pm.
