Epsom Oaks

The Epsom Oaks, a Group 1 flat horse race is held in the UK. The race is for 3-year-old thoroughbred fillies and takes place over a distance of run over 2,423 meters at Epsom Downs annually in June. It is one of five United Kingdom Classic Races. The race gets its name from the Earl of Derby's estate "The Oaks" in Carshalton.

The last two winning trainers of the race have been Michael Jarvis and Aidan O'Brien, but the dominant trainer in recent memory is Henry Cecil who won The Oaks four times in the span of five years from 1996-2000, and at the time of writing trained the 2007 antepost betting favourite.
