Kentucky Oaks

It is Spring.
It is horse racing season.
And today, it is the Kentucky Oaks.


This is my favorite race. The Kentucky Oaks is the running of the fillies. 
The girls go first.

The Longines Kentucky Oaks is considered by some to be among the most popular horse races in American horse-racing society due to its high attendance. 
It attracts about 100,000 people in attendance a year.

So why is the Kentucky Oaks so fun? 
It is very pink.



The Survivors Parade is a march of breast cancer survivors. 

And everyone wears pink.

Including the fillies.



The Hats are Pink!!

The parties are pink.
I love this one called "Fillies and Lillies."



The drinks are pink.





Even the winners get pink.
History was made in the 138th running when a long shot Believe You Can, ridden by Rosie Napravnik, the first female jockey to win the $1 million race.


People dream of going to the Kentucky Derby.
Me? I dream about the Kentucky Oaks.

See ya at 5:49
