The Kentucky Oaks is a 136 year old horse racing event that features three year old Fillies.
Like it's big brother, the Kentucky Derby, the Kentucky Oaks owns a namesake race, a signature flower and a special cocktail.
The Oaks has recently adopted a signature color as well-PINK (in honor of their signature flower and breast cancer awareness). The Oaks has joined with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Horses and Hope.
