Kentucky Oaks 141

The 141st Kentucky Oaks took place May 1 at Churchill Downs. For the seventh consecutive year, guests were invited to wear pink attire in honor of the Oaks official flower – the stargazer lily – and in support of Churchill Downs’ partnerships with Bright Pink and Horses & Hope. The Oaks was founded by Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr. in 1875 along with the Kentucky Derby.
