The silver Kentucky Oaks trophy is ready for the fastest filly on the track

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The fastest filly on the track Friday will take home the silver Kentucky Oaks trophy.

The large silver cup is strictly ceremonial.

The Oaks trophy stays on display at the Derby Museum throughout the year. Each winner's name is engraved on the trophy, soon after the Oaks Race.

The winner is given a set of 12 silver julep cups that are presented to the winning horse's owner in a special case.

The cups are later engraved with the names of the winning connections and the year. It is a sentimental tradition that the winning owner gifts a julep cup each to the winning trainer, winning jockey and the breeder of the horse, although they are not required to give the cups as gifts.
