The time has arrived. Here in the Bluegrass, horse racing is more anxiously awaited than Christmas. It's finally time for the colts who have been proving their stamina all year to strut to the starting gate and show us all what they're made of.
We could not be more excited to be attending the Breeders' Cup ourselves and taking our Kentucky Proud accessories with us. We look forward to seeing how you pair your hoof pick belts and bit bracelets with your race day dresses and khakis. Be sure to keep sending in your submissions for a chance to be on next weeks post for our first ever Breeders' Cup Feature!
Once Breeders' has ended and we begin our transition to the Holiday season, stay on the lookout for details regarding our Greek Giveaway! We will be posting all of the information to our blog next week so be sure to check in to find out how you can play a part in raising $1,000 for your favorite philanthropy!
October is our favorite month in the Buegrass. The leaves are changing, it's sweater weather and our Cats are attempting to win a football game. What could be better?
Our favorite thing about October, however, is Keeneland. College Scholarship Day was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who had a chance to come out and take a look at our Kentucky Proud merchandise in the Gift Shop.
We saw our belts paired with mens khakis as well as ladies dresses and sweaters. That got us thinking.. we would love to feature YOU. For the remainder of October and all of November, tag us on facebook, instagram, or twitter with a picture of how you wear your Bluegrass Belts accessories for a chance to be featured on our What's New blog. We can't wait to see how you wear your Kentucky Proud belts and bracelets and how your four legged friends look in their collars.
Be sure to check in next week to see who is featured and for another update on our road to the Breeders' Cup!
