The field is set for the 147th running of the Kentucky Oaks. Fourteen three-year-old fillies will enter the starting gate Friday evening at Churchill Downs to race nine furlongs for the prestigious garland of lilies and $1.25 million purse.
Seeking his fourth Kentucky Oaks victory, Todd Pletcher’s Malathaat is the 5-2 favorite. She’s in close company with Search Results and Travel Column each opening at 3-1. Brad Cox will try to win his third Oaks with Travel Column and the long shot, Coach.
The 11th race Friday at Churchill Downs is set for a 5:51 pm ET post time. You can watch all of the action from 3-6 pm on NBCSN.
