Dapper Derby Event Update #7
Oh, man! Is it Derby yet?! Unfortunately, we have three more to wait for the actual Derby races. The biggest day before the Derby is the Kentucky Oaks.

Presented by Longines, Oaks is the race before the Kentucky Derby in which the winner wins $750,000/ or the $1,250,000 purse, a silver trophy, and a stunning garland of lilies.
Oaks is a full-day event, with the gates opening bright and early at 9:00 am. Below is a schedule for Oaks:
