The most exciting weekend in horse racing starts today with the Kentucky Oaks, so naturally we were asked what to wear to the Kentucky Derby? We went for perfect pink in honor of the Oaks official flower, the stargazer lily, and the official color to connect the Oaks with its partner charities, Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® and Horses and Hope. The Survivors Parade, presented by Kroger will take place to show support for breast cancer survivors. And then it’s on to the 137 Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby tomorrow.
