Welcome to the 2017 Derby Hat Countdown with MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today I am featuring Hat #23, courtesy of Leigh McKathan of McKathan Brothers Training Center wearing her “Teddy” top hat design to last year’s Kentucky Oaks. Created in a mix of red and fuchsia silks, this hat is perfect for the Oaks or the Derby and is found in the The Rosie Signature Hat Collection that helps to support the retired racehorses of Old Friends in KY.

Only 22 Derby chapeaux and 22 days to go ’til the 143rd Kentucky Derby!
Welcome to The Daily Topper with MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are showcasing the second of our “Hats Off to the Horses” chapeaux making their debuts in the Big Apple for the 148th Belmont Stakes! The “War Emblem” chapeau was this year’s April auction with all of the proceeds going to the retired racehorses of Old Friends.
This one of a kind Derby hat was created to honor a beloved retiree of Old Friends – Kentucky-bred 2002 Derby and Preakness winner, War Emblem, who recently retired to Old Friends. ❤
The winning bidder of the “War Emblem” was Leigh McKathan of McKathan Brothers Training Center in Ocala, FL, wonderful supporters of our “Hats Off” campaign for Old Friends!
We’ll be posting photos here on Belmont Stakes Day so stay tuned! 😉
