The First-Hand Passion of Horse Racing | 2022 Kentucky Oaks Edition

05.09.2022

Join America's Best Racing as we go behind the scenes with NY Final Furlong Racing Stable’s Vince Roth as he rooted on his horse #8 Venti Valentine at this year's thrilling Longines Kentucky Oaks.

The Kentucky Oaks is a special event in horse racing. Taking place the Friday before the historic Kentucky Derby, the Oaks is a Grade 1 stakes race for 3-year-old Thoroughbred fillies staged annually in Louisville, Ky. at Churchill Downs.

In this behind-the-scenes video, ABR follows NY Final Furlong Racing Stable’s Vince Roth as he gears up for the biggest race yet for his racehorse #8 Venti Valentine, which he owns in partnership.

Experience Roth's raw excitement as he, along with an entire contingent of New Yorkers, prepare for the start of the 2022 Kentucky Oaks, including his interaction with fans and his endearing exchanges with his young family right before the race.

While #8 Venti Valentine didn’t finish in the top spot, audiences will get a unique look at just how powerful the relationship between owner and racehorse can be when Venti is forced to finish last in order to ensure her safety — a noble act by the team’s jockey who is equally as concerned about the health of his horse as he is the final finishing place in the race.
