(Rachel McLaughlin, racing analyst and marketing guru for Indiana Grand & Casino, will serve as our “Master of Ceremonies” & Emcee for today’s high-profile fashion show known as “Brims & Bridles” at the LTS. This year’s inaugural event is over-sold and we are looking for more.)

Editor’s Note:

We truly didn’t know what to expect when we embarked on our first endeavor to host a high-end, high-profile “Fashion Show” that is dedicated to giving both men and women options and view before this year’s Kentucky Oaks and Derby season.


What a learning experience.

Today’s event — the first of its’ kind at the new Louisville Thoroughbred Society is completely over-sold thanks to good friends all around — including member extraordinary Julie Hinson.

Today’s event is going to be truly remarkable — thanks in large part to the amazing team at Crushed Ice Catering and the Ice House. They can make more chicken salad than anyone I know. Remarkable team.

Today’s event is going to be fun.

We will have photos and stories to tell later.

But here’s a look at the pre-game prep that goes into something like this.

It is not for the faint of heart.

And, I’m faint of heart.
