Welcome to the slideshow for the “Thunder Rumble” hat!
~ January 2013
For the fourth consecutive year, MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® and Old Friends are teaming up for an unparalleled online shopping experience: “Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby”. This unique Derby hat fundraiser features one-of-a-kind couture Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® to benefit the retired racehorses of Old Friends.
The third hat up for bid in January 2013 honors New York-bred Thunder Rumble, winner of the 1992 Jim Dandy and Travers Stakes. This nearly black stallion was one of the very first retirees to Old Friends’ satellite farm in New York, Old Friends at Cabin Creek: The Bobby Frankel Division. Cape Cod milliner Sally Faith Steinmann of MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® has created this stunning one-of-a-kind couture Derby hat to honor this great champion who arrived at the Old Friends Cabin Creek farm in 2009.
We hope you enjoy this slideshow presentation of the “Thunder Rumble” chapeau. A special thank you to Connie Bush of Tiger Eye Photography for sharing her amazing photos of the great stallion, Thunder Rumble, with all of us!
