HORSE RACING | One week out from the Kentucky Oaks

04/29/2016 05:03 PM

We are only seven days away from the 142nd running of the Kentucky Oaks . It as historically more Bluegrass focused event than the international spotlight of the Derby on Saturday. Both races take place at Churchill downs in Louisville, and in the weeks leading up the big races, the backside of the track develops an anticipatory buzz.

We were at Churchill Downs again this morning and caught up with a few Derby and Oaks trainers to find out more about their excitement for next weekend.
