2019 KENTUCKY OAKS RESULTS AND PAYOUTS
On Friday, May 3, 2019, Joel Politi’s Serengeti Empress burst to the lead and took the field on a merry chase around the track, then dug in to repel Liora late to win Friday’s Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs. Trained by Tom Amoss and ridden by jockey Jose Ortiz, Serengeti Empress crossed the wire with a 1 3/4-length advantage in a final time of 1:50.17 for the 1 1/8-mile event over the fast main track.
Serengeti Empress’ win was her fourth in a stakes race and improved her overall record to 8-5-0-0 with $1,037,120 earned. The 3-year-old daughter of Alternation bounced back tremendously after she bled in her last start, the Fair Grounds Oaks (G2) on March 23, due to Amoss’ careful attentiveness as she resumed training.
