Picking the perfect hat for Breeder’s Cup 2017

Breeder’s Cup


Believe it or not, I am always stumped on what to wear to the races.  When I attended Breeder’s Cup in 2010, I didn’t decide until the last minute.  Much that was due to Breeder’s Cup being at Churchill Downs and the weather was bitterly cold.  However, the 2017 Breeder’s Cup will be held in sunny Southern California on November 3 and 4, so that makes the choice much easier! 

The fascinator with the horses shoes is one I designed for Breeder’s Cup in 2010.  It was a challenge but probably one of coolest pieces that I have ever done!

The biggest tip that I can give to a lady is to pick something elegant and classic to wear to the Breeder’s Cup.  This racing event is quite different from the other races, even the Kentucky Derby.  The atmosphere is very posh.  Remember that these are top race horses in the world who have already proved themselves in other races.  This is a stylish and sophisticated event, very different from the Kentucky Derby.   Breeder’s Cup hats and fascinators.

 

The official Breeder’s Cup color is purple.  Purple can be paired with greens, blues, dark rust oranges for a stunning finish.  And for some reason, purple really works with most hair colors.  In my opinion, Breeder’s Cup purple is an easy color to work with.

I have designed hats and fascinators featuring the racing colors for different stables.  Polly Singer Couture Hats is known as the expert for designing custom hats using all sorts of colors.  I haven’t been stumped yet.  Challenged but not stumped!

At one point in the late 1990’s, I almost moved to Del Mar, California.  It holds a very special place in my heart.  There is so much to see in San Diego.  I would encourage people to visit for the entire week.  I loved San Diego’s Old Town, Balboa Park, the Gaslamp District, Hotel Del Coronado, Encinatas, etc.  It just doesn’t end.

So enjoy your trip to the 2017 Breeder’s Cup Classic, either via your armchair or visiting the Del Mar Race Track. Visit Breeder’s Cup
