It used to be that the Oaks lived in the shadow of the Kentucky Derby but that is no longer the case! I was thrilled to be able to attend and would highly recommend going this year! Even if you aren’t a horse racing fan, you’ll still love the people watching and the partying. Grab a big straw hat and your best dress (or suit) and head to Kentucky for the best weekend of the year. Even if you don’t win a bet on the races, you’ll still get to enjoy the friendly southern culture and a mint julep!
The Kentucky Oaks is run the day before the Kentucky Derby, It is one of the final races of the day and is all Lady Horses racing. The experience is very close to the Derby just a few less people at Churchhill Downs. Everyone dresses up. The ladies are all wearing the Beautiful hats. The only difference is most people include Pink in thier dress and the prices are about 1/3 the price of the Derby. This is the best value and highly recommended way to enjoy a day a Churchill Downs.

Review 3 for Kentucky Oaks

The service was the best I had ever received from an on line company. Scott was a great representative for the company. Very helpful in helping me find the tickets I needed for the budget I had. I will use and suggest to all my friends. Thanks again.
