The 2018 “Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby” for Old Friends sponsored exclusively by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® is now underway with the first auction hat of the season, the “Awesome Gem”!
This one-of-a-kind Derby hat was created to honor 2010 Hollywood Gold Cup winner, Awesome Gem, who was retired to Old Friends in 2017 thanks to the generosity of West Point Thoroughbreds.
A special thank you to EquiSport Photos who does all of our “Hats Off to the Horses” photo shoots in Kentucky, and to Krystal Court, her husband, jockey Jon Court and their daughter Aubrey for being outstanding models for this hat.
But thank you most of all to Awesome Gem, the horse, who inspired this very special hat that will raise funds to support all of the retired racehorses of Old Friends.
If you would like to bid on the “Awesome Gem” chapeau please place your bid at this link on EBay.
Bidding ends Thursday, January 11th at 8 PM EST. All of the proceeds go to Old Friends.
Thank you for supporting Old Friends!
