Betting the 2019 Kentucky Oaks

At about 6:10 pm ET on Friday, 14 three-year-old fillies will line up at the starting gate at Churchill Downs for the Grade 1, $1.25 million Longines Kentucky Oaks.

Post positions were drawn, morning-line odds announced on Monday (you’ll find them here), and thus began the serious handicapping.

Our public handicappers are back with their advice for a Kentucky Oaks wager, which you can place at racetracks and off-track betting facilities, or through on-line wagering platforms.

Good luck, and safe trips to all.
