The Kentucky Oaks – the Kentucky Derby's sister race - was run before 113,820 fans, the second largest crowd ever to view the nation's most lucrative race for 3-year-old Thoroughbred fillies.

The winner receives a silver trophy, an estimated $564,200 payday and a garland of pink stargazer lilies.

The 1 1/8 mile race is held annually on the day before the Kentucky Derby.
