The race is limited to 14 horses and if more than 14 horses wish to enter the race, spots will be reserved for the top 14 point earners from the Road to the Kentucky Oaks qualifying series. The series is divided into two phases, the Kentucky Oaks Prep Season and the Kentucky Oaks Championship Series.
The prep season consists of races of one mile or longer that are run between September of the 2 year old season thru February of the 3 year old season. Points are awarded to the top 4 finishers in each race on a 10-4-2-1 scale. The championship season consists of two legs and a “wild card” round. The first leg includes minor prep races with points awarded on a 50-20-10-5 scale. The second leg includes major prep races, with a 100-40-20-10 points distribution.
Kentucky Oaks Wild Card
The “wild card” consists of one race and with points on a 10-4-2-1 scale. Fillies that compete in Road to the Kentucky Derby races will also receive those points in the Oaks standings, however, points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks are not credited towards qualifying for the Derby.
The major prep races are also known as the Super Six since they are worth 100 Point Races to the winner. This makes these races virtual “Win and Your In” events since horses that earn 100 points are guaranteed to make the field. The Super Six race are the Santa Anita Oaks (G1) at Santa Anita Park, the Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) at Gulfstream Park, the Ashland Stakes (G1) at Keeneland Race Course, the Fair Grounds Oaks (G2) at Fair Ground Race Course, the Gazelle Stakes (G2) at Aqueduct Racetrack and the Fantasy Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park.
