More about the Oaks race and pill pulls

“A traditional ‘pill pull’ in which horses’ entry blanks are pulled simultaneously with a numbered pill to determine what stall a horse will break from the starting gate,” Churchill Downs explains.

Preference to the nation’s premier race for 3-year-old fillies is given to the top point-earners on the “Road to the Kentucky Oaks.”

Up to 18 horses may enter the 1 1/8-mile race and four horses can be listed as “also eligible” and would be ranked in order accordingly; they could draw into the field should any horse(s) be scratched before scratch time on Friday, April 30, 2021, at 9 a.m.
