For the casual horse racing fan, the Kentucky Derby is the biggest day of the year. “The fastest two minutes in sports” is a thrill a minute ride with millions of dollars on the line, and tickets bought by people all across America. And the fashion along Millionaire’s Row, filled with celebrities and the wealthiest, people

But for those with a passion for horse racing, especially those local to Louisville area, the Kentucky Oaks is the place to see and be seen on the day before the Derby. This year 14 three-year old fillies will run in this $1.25 Million Grade 1 stakes race. Instead of the Run for the Roses, the Oaks showers the winning horse in “Lilies for the Fillies.”
