This coming weekend, Nov. 5 and 6, the Breeders' Cup returns to Louisville. So, the who’s who of the horse world will again descend upon our fair city. I have a chance to go to the preview races on Friday, but I’ll have to see how my schedule shakes out.
With the cooler weather, Breeders Cup offers a different take on the fabulous finery at Churchill Downs. Instead of straw hats and Lilly Pulitzer-inspired colors, the fall meet features wool cloches, leather boots and more earth tones, yet some vibrant colors still manage to get thrown in the mix. These hats from Susan Van der Linde are simply gorgeous.
Très expensive, but gorgeous nontheless.
The Breeders Cup only makes it to Churchill every few years, so when there’s a chance to wear a great hat in November, be sure to jump at the chance.
