Much revered as the oldest sporting event to still take place in the US, the Kentucky Oaks is a Grade 1 stakes horse race. The race first started out in 1875 and has since been taking place every year at the same venue in Kentucky. Three-year old fillies are specifically bred for the race and each horse races carrying 55kg on the left handed dirt track. A whole year is taken in the build up to the event as the ‘Road to the Kentucky Oaks’ features multiple races throughout the year where points are awarded to horses and jockeys. These all culminate at the Kentucky Oaks in Louisville where the winner is given the silver Kentucky Oaks Trophy.

The Kentucky Oaks is easily the most well attended horse racing event in the continent. While attendance in the 1980s and 1990s peaked at 60,000 people, the attendance records since 2003 have all shown over 100,000 people in attendance.
