LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Welcome to Oaks Day 2022, a return to a more traditional experience for horseracing fans.

First run on May 19, 1875, the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby are the oldest continuously contested sporting events in history.

The top 14 point earners nominated to the Longines Kentucky Oaks earn their spot in the starting gate for the 148th running of the Oaks. The 1 1/8-mile Oaks features the top 3-year-old fillies. At least 14 horses have entered the race in six of the last seven years. The rescheduled race in 2020 was the lone exception.  Nest is the morning line favorite.  The Oaks race goes off at 5:51 p.m.
