While all of the attentions and headlines are focused on the 2013 Kentucky Derby, the field for the Kentucky Oaks has been overlooked despite the impressive group of participants. Dreaming of Julia is the early morning betting favorite, with Unlimited Budget and Beholder closely behind. Midnight Lucky was a pre-race favorite, but the three-year-old fillies odds opened at 9/2.
The Kentucky Oaks will air on the NBC Sports Network, with coverage beginning at 5:00 p.m. ET. Post time is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. ET.
