It's Finally Here!

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 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!

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!


Want to be Featured?

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!

Keeneland Attire & Greek Philanthropy

This past weekend was one that the Bluegrass State has been looking forward to since April 27th; the start of Keeneland's 2016 Fall Race Meet. There's not a better time to be had anywhere else in our great state this time of year. With the combination of fast horses, quality liquor and southern hospitality, the track is the place to be when the weekend rolls around.
The thing that really draws crowds (besides the allure of blowing our rent checks on bets we know we aren't gonna win) is the opportunity to get done up in our "sundy best" with 30,000 of our closest friends. Fall in the Bluegrass for the guys means breaking out the sport coat, our best khakis pants and our favorite tartan ties. For the girls this means that it's time to put away the sundresses and trade the cowboy boots for riding boots.
With Keeneland's College Scholarship Day quickly approaching this Friday, everyone is going to be looking for that special piece to give their outfit the extra pop it needs to stand out from the crowd. We are proud to say that you don't even have to leave the track to find it. Be sure to stop in to the Keeneland Gift Shop and check out our belts and bracelets there. Guys, nothing goes better with a pair of cowboy boots or bit loafers than our signature Hoof Pick Belt; and ladies, pair our Horse Bit Bracelet with your favorite watch to put your outfit in the Winner's Circle this Fall Meet!
Be sure to check back in next week for information on how to win $1000 for your philanthropy in our Sorority Competition!
Thank you to Bella Rose and Country Club Prep for donating these great Fall looks!
