LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Oaks fans can toast the winning filly with the Oaks Lily.
Grey Goose serves up the official cocktail of the race in a commemorative glass, and it's a fan favorite at Churchill downs. It even sells out the mint julep at Friday's races.
The Grey Goose Oaks Lily will be available on the red carpet and for purchase at racetrack concessions and VIP areas throughout the races, with a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the Grey Goose Oaks Lily to benefit Horses and Hope.
