As the premiere event for three-year-old fillies in the spring, the Kentucky Oaks carries plenty of prestige and a lucrative payday (at least $600,000 to the winner) for connections. The 1 1/8-mile race can be oversubscribed as a result, with only 14 runners allowed in the starting gate. Churchill Downs instituted a new format in 2013 to determine eligibility with a Road to the Kentucky Oaks points system and schedule.

Called the “Road to the Kentucky Oaks” series, points are awarded on a sliding scale to the top 4 finishers in designated prep races. The Oaks Road typically kicks off with the Pocahontas Stakes at Churchill Downs and continues through early April with events at some of the countries best race courses, including Santa Anita, Aqueduct, Keeneland, Oaklawn Park, Fair Grounds, Gulfstream Park and Churchill Downs

These prep races are divided into two categories – the Kentucky Oaks Prep Season and Kentucky Oaks Championship Series. The Prep Season runs through March 5th, awarding points on a 10-4-2-1 basis to the top four respective finishers. The only exception is the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies which awards 20-8-4-2.

The Championship Series begins in February and holds eight races on the Championship Series schedule offering 50-20-10-5 points; six other races, which are known as the final round of major prep races, award 100-40-20-10; and one outlier is the the Beaumont’s 10-4-2-1 point awards.
