Kentucky Oaks 2011 Start Time, Field, Odds: Fillies' Race Provides Churchill Downs Warmup

The 2011 Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs' schedule includes a post time shortly after 5 pm ET, to be aired live on Versus. The fillies' race has been run nearly as long as the Kentucky Derby itself, the United States' longest continually run sporting event. Just a few days shy, in fact.

Be sure to read our detailed breakdown of the Kentucky Oaks' field of contenders, along with odds and a list of picks by our resident horse racing expert. Joyful Victory is the 5/2 favorite, with Kathmanblu and Zazu close behind at 4/1. SPOILER ALERT: 20/1 Daisy Devine is the filly for you, having been granted a favorable No. 9 draw.

The 2011 Kentucky Derby post time is at 6:24 p.m. (ET) on Saturday, May 7th and SB Nation has everything you need to prepare for it - current Derby odds, contender profiles, field updates and more. You can find all of that and more at our 2011 Kentucky Derby StoryStream. Also, our horse racing blog And Down The Stretch They Come has two must-read resources for Derby fans: A Beginner's Guide To Following Horse Racing and a glossary of horse racing terms.
