The Kentucky Oaks is not only the first day of the Kentucky Derby racing weekend, but it also marks the first racing day of the Triple Crown season. The actual Kentucky Oaks race on the first Friday in May features all fillies (female horses) just like its counterparts, the Black Eyed Susan Stakes during Preakness and the Acorn Stakes during Belmont. And while celebrating the excitement for racing on Kentucky Oaks day is fun, there is a deeper celebration occurring at the track. For the last twelve years, Churchill Downs has continued a tradition of the Survivors Parade, a march honoring breast and ovarian cancer survivors. Attendees are encouraged to wear pink to honor the survivors in a show of support. Whether it is a dress, shoes or perhaps a hat, don’t forget your pink on the first Friday in May! Below are a few selections from the website to help you get your pink on!
