Two noted American jockeys finished 1-2 in the Kentucky Oaks of one year and the next day hooked up again in the Kentucky Derby, again finishing 1-2 (though not necessarily in the same order).

Braulio Baeza and Johnny Sellers were 1-2 in the 1961 Kentucky Oaks aboard My Portrait and Playtime, respectively. The next day, they finished in the reverse order aboard Crozier and Carry Back in the Kentucky Derby.
