The Daily Topper from MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® – June 7, 2016

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.

TheDailyTopper-June7-2016-BlogThis 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.  ❤

WarEmblem-LauraBattles30-Framed-MedThe 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!

Blog-LeighMcKathan6-PendArmistead-Derby2015We’ll be posting photos here on Belmont Stakes Day so stay tuned!  😉
