Ladies First

Ladies' Day at Churchill Downs

The Kentucky Derby’s sister event is as old as the “Run for the Roses” but features fillies and lilies and lots of things women love.  In fact, women are such an important part of the Oaks experience that we’ve officially named the day “Ladies First.”  Of course guys are welcome, too!

In addition to a fantastic race card, highlighted by the 139th running of the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks for 3-year-old fillies, we've got an afternoon of special activities planned for our female guests.

So, ladies, get ready for a special day during Derby weekend that's designed just for you.  We hope to see you under the Twin Spires May 3 for Kentucky Oaks 139!
