Rebel Boosted to $1 Million, New Stakes Created For Expanded 2019 Oaklawn Park Meet

One of the richest Thoroughbred race meets in North America will now offer two $1,000,000 Kentucky Derby prep races and two additional signature races.

Oaklawn, which earlier this year announced a significant change to its race dates, turned it up another notch Wednesday when it announced that both the Arkansas Derby (G1) and the Rebel Stakes (G2) will offer a guaranteed purse of $1,000,0000 in 2019. The two $1,000,000 races for 3-year-olds highlight a 57-day season that begins Jan. 25 and for the first time in the 115-year history of the facility extends past Arkansas Derby Day through Saturday, May 4.
