Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby


Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby is well underway, the annual online Derby hat auction created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® to support the retired racehorses of Old Friends. This unique hat auction features a new Derby hat design each month that designer Sally Steinmann, Milliner, has created to honor one of the Thoroughbreds at Old Friends. 

All of the proceeds from this running auction benefit Old Friends Equine and you can read all about it at http://www.maggiemae.com/OldFriendsAuction.htm
Sally continues her theme of "Rosie and Friends" with the fourth hat (See photo attachment) up on the auction block which is the "Catlaunch" Chapeau created to honor Ohio-bred and 3-time Ohio Horse of the Year and millionaire, Catlaunch. The hat with full description and photos can be seen at The Catlaunch Hat webpage.

Sally loved having Shea Leparoux with her husband jockey Julien Leparoux modeling this handcrafted, one-of-a-kind Derby hat in a special photo shoot at Old Friends. Check out this fabulous behind-the-scenes video by EquiSport Photos of the photo shoot at http://vimeo.com/115581281
