Kentucky Oaks: Five Horses To Like Among the Fillies

It is run 24 hours before the Kentucky Derby, but you're likely to see better racing in Friday's Kentucky Oaks, with a number of fillies looking to make a splash at Churchill Downs.

This is where we all fell in love with Rachel Alexandria. She ran one of the most impressive races in horse racing history at the Oaks by taking down the field by 20 lengths.

She went on to trounce the colts at the Preakness en route to Horse of the Year honors.

So might we see a Preakness preview once again?

With the wide-open Derby field and things looking wilder for Pimlico, it's very possible the Oaks winner goes into Maryland as the Preakness favorite.

The Oaks goes off at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Not up on the field?

We have five horses worth making a play this afternoon.
