An excellent, stakes-laden program is on the agenda at Churchill Downs on Friday, September 4–Kentucky Oaks Day 2020 in Louisville, Ky.

The 13-race card is highlighted by the 146th running of the $1,250,000 Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) for three-year-old fillies to be contested at a nine-furlong trip on the main track. Peter J. Callahan’s Swiss Skydiver, an open-length winner of the Alabama Stakes (G1) at Saratoga in her last start, and Michael Petersen’s Gamine–a multiple Grade 1 winner–will vie for favoritism in the two-turn test.

The five other supporting stakes races on the Oaks Day program include the 65th running of the $300,000 Eight Belles Stakes Presented by Twinspires.com (G2), the 36th renewal of the Edgewood Stakes Presented by Forcht Bank (G2T), the 17th running of the $400,000 Alysheba Stakes Presented by Sentient Jet (G2), the 35th renewal of the $500,000 La Troienne Stakes Presented by Oak Grove Racing and Gaming (G1), and the 26th edition of the $250,000 Twin Spires Turf Sprint Stakes Presented by Sysco (G2T).
