“Friends of Old Friends” Support Old Friends 2017 Derby Hat Auction

Welcome to our February “Hats Off to the Horses” auction for 2017 that honors 2012 Breeders Cup Turf and Arlington Million winner, Little Mike!

This season, MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® has reached out to some of the friends of Old Friends to ask them for their support in helping to spread the word about “Hats Off to the Horses” this year.

Invitations were sent to a number of Thoroughbred horse farms and racing organizations across the country to join us in this new social media campaign.

For all those who decided to join us as a “Friend of Old Friends” we have added their business logos to our auction publicity which will showcase their support. In turn, during each of our four “Hats Off” auction months (January through April) all of the “Friends” will join with us in sharing the auction through their own social media channels.

We are hoping that this new social media participation will expand our audience for “Hats Off to the Horses” as well as generate greater concern for all horses everywhere.

Please join me in thanking the following organizations that have joined us whom we are thrilled to welcome as “Friends of Old Friends”!
