The third annual year of “Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby”, a 6-month online Derby hat auction fundraiser that benefits Old Friends, is drawing to a close for this year.
This unique hat auction features a new one-of-a-kind Derby hat design each month created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Couture Millinery to honor one of the Thoroughbred retirees at Old Friends. Altogether, they have raised over $12,000, and all of the proceeds from this running auction benefit the retired racehorses of Old Friends Equine!
The sixth and final auction hat in this year’s series is a hat created to honor Grade II winner and millionaire gelding, Arson Squad, one of the most recent retirees at Old Friends of Georgetown, KY.
