Kentucky Oaks 2021

The Kentucky Oaks takes place the Friday before the Kentucky Derby (Friday 30 April 2021) and is America's premier race for 3-year-old fillies. 

After 13 races of the Prep Schedule, Vequist leads the 'Road To The Kentucky Oaks' table with 24 points but with some big points races to come in February - such as the Rachel Alexandra worth 50 points to the winner - places in the final Oaks field are very much up for grabs.

History:  The Kentucky Oaks traditionally takes place the Friday before the Kentucky Derby and is open to fillies. Like the Derby, horses qualify for the race via a series of prep races which give out a variety of points. The top 14 fillies are then offered the chance to start the race. The Oaks is often called colloquially the ‘Lillies for the Fillies’ and the winner is presented with a Silver Kentucky Oaks Trophy.

The first race took place in 1875 and was initially called the Louisville Jockey Club. Meriweather Lewis Clark Jr. founded the race just like he did with the Kentucky Derby. He modeled the race after the Epsom Oaks, which is a race in Great Britain and has been run since 1779.

When it comes to race distances, the Kentucky Oaks has been run at four different lengths with the longest being one and a half miles and the shortest being one mile and a sixteenth. The current race distance is one mile and an eighth, which it has been constantly since 1982.

The biggest priced winner for the race was Lemons Forever who came home as a 47/1 shot in 2006 and Rachel Alexander holds the record for the biggest winning distance, having romped home by 20 and a quarter lengths in 2009. Serengeti Empress won the race in 2019 for Tom Amoss.
