Traditions

Fillies, Lilies and More...

Throughout its 138-year history, the Kentucky Oaks has collected its own traditions, and like its companion event, the Kentucky Derby known as America's Race™, features a namesake race, boasts a special flower, offers an official cocktail and -- as of 2009 -- has official charity partners that make the Oaks not only a great sports and entertainment experience but also a party with a purpose.

The Oaks has also adopted a signature color -- one that has us tickled PINK.

Keep exploring the site to learn more about Oaks traditions and what makes the Derby's "little sister" so special.
