2012 Kentucky Oaks Preview: Post Time, TV Schedule And More

The 2012 Kentucky Derby is a week-long celebration of horse racing, and on Friday there is the running of the 2012 Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs. The Oaks is highlighted by a $1 million, Grade 1 race for three-year old fillies on the 1 1/8 mile man track, and the post time for that 11th race is set for 4:45 p.m. CT on the NBC Sports Network. There also also some great races on the undercard, including stakes races like the G2-La Troienne, G2-Eight Belles, The Edgewood, G2-Alysheba and G2-American Turf.
