The "Amazombie"
Place your bid now through February 11th

For the seventh consecutive year, MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® of Cape Cod and Old Friends of Kentucky are teaming up again for an unparalleled online shopping experience that begins November 1st with their "Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby" auction. This unique Derby hat fundraiser is an annual event which features one-of-a-kind couture Derby hats created and donated by Sally Faith Steinmann of MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® to benefit the retired racehorses of Old Friends.

Our first six years of the fundraiser have been a great success, and to date well over $26,000 has been raised for the retired racehorses of Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement facility.

The fourth hat up for bid in our auction series honors multiple graded stakes and Eclipse award winner, Amazombie. Amazombie's victories in the 2011 Sunshine Millions Sprint, the Tiznow Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at Churchill Downs earned him the 2011 Eclipse Award winner as Champion Sprinter. Amazombie was retired in 2012, and arrived at Old Friends in 2014 thanks to the efforts of Bill Spawr.

The “Amazombie” chapeau is up for bid from February 1st through the 11th.
Bid via eBay here!
