Pink Kentucky Derby hats by East Angel Harbor Hats specializing in beautiful women's couture hats for the Derby.  The Longines Kentucky Oaks is America's premier and most lucrative race for 3-year old fillies - female horses - held each year on the day before the Kentucky Derby. This feature race is a $1 Million Grade 1 stakes race and awards the winning filly a garland of lilies, appropriately named “lilies for the fillies.  Like the Kentucky Derby, the Longines Kentucky Oaks race is one of the longest continually held sporting events in American history, and one of the only horse races to take place at the original site of its inception. The race was established on May 19th, 1875, by the same founder of the Kentucky Derby, Colonel Meriwether Lewis Clark, and is modeled after the British Epsom Oaks.

Kentucky Oaks Day at Churchill Downs is the fourth highest attended horse race in the United States - following the Triple Crown of racing; the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. Aside from thunderous live horse racing, fans celebrate fashion and fundraising for critical women's health issues.

If you are planning to attend the Kentucky Oaks, we encourage you to wear any color as long as it is PINK from hats to handkerchiefs, suits to sundresses, sunglasses to stilettos! Churchill Downs invites you to THINK PINK when planning your attire for Kentucky Oaks day, in honor of the Oaks official flower - the stargazer lily - and in support of Churchill Downs official partnership with Horses & Hope.

You can show off your pink duds in the Longines Kentucky Oaks Fashion Contest, for an opportunity to win a Longines time piece. The contest will take place on the Pink Carpet on Kentucky Oaks day.  Source:  www.kentuckyderby.com/visit/derby-week/oaks
