Kentucky Oaks 2014 Set for May 2 at Churchill Downs
Just as the Kentucky Derby will be celebrating its 140th running in 2014, so too will its horse racing companion, the Kentucky Oaks, when action unfolds at Churchill Downs on Friday, May 2. Both highly anticipated horse racing events have a history dating back to 1875 and have maintained a residency at the prestigious Louisville, Ky., track since their inceptions. The Kentucky Oaks in particular is of course a race featuring three-year-old Thoroughbred fillies, and since 1982, has been 1 1/8 miles in length. Prizes for the race total $1 million, while the winner walks away with $600,000 and the customary garland dubbed “Lillies for the Fillies.”
The 2013 edition brought the institution of a new points system, which was implemented to replace the previously used graded stakes earnings scale. Nominees for the 2014 race were revealed in late February, led by award-winning trainer Todd Pletcher, who registered 17 fillies on the initial list of 121 finalists. A Pletcher-trained filly has prevailed three times since 2004, including in 2013, when Princess of Sylmar won with a time of 1:49.17, the fastest Kentucky Oaks mark in four years.
