The post positions for the 143rd Running of the Kentucky Oaks have been revealed.

Paradise Woods will start from the fourth post position and is the morning line favorite for the race with 5/2 odds to win.

Meanwhile, Miss Sky Warrior has the second-best odds in the field. At 9/2 odds, she will start in the tenth post position.

Abel Tasman and Farrell each have the third-best odds at 5/1 odds.
