HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR BIGGEST FANS
"Their fedoras, skimmers and Kate Middleton pimple hats, not to mention a few cigars and many mint juleps, bespoke an al fresco event"
"Attendees kibitzed and wagered at the dressy, afternoon affair. Sales of the Woodford Reserve $100 Julep cocktail supported Face of Today Foundation's Street to Home initiative"
"This year's Thoroughbred event was a fun filled day of elegant extravagance, attracting some of Vancouver society's finest. Attendees donned their fanciest frocks and most dapper attire to enjoy an afternoon of champagne and entertainment while trying their luck on the races. Every detail of the day was exquisitely executed."
"Dapper gents and chic ladies gathered to revel in the pageantry and betting of a good old fashioned day at the races"
LISA NAKAMURA NGUYEN
"Thoroughbred is the most sophisticated and playful event of the summer. I'm already planning my outfit for next year"
"This was an event where people had come to see and be seen"
"Looking at the crowd was like peering into a menagerie of exotic and colourful birds"
"The essence of races from decades past"
"The affair had everything. I'm always up for these as I know the attention to detail and little touches the organizers paid from drinks, sponsors, and vendors to the Rolls-Royce on display"
"Their Thoroughbred event melds traditional Kentucky Derby aesthetic with the energy of a burgeoning city that has recently found it's international voice, on a fun Saturday afternoon in August. Ladies in hats, gentlemen in ascots...traditional meets new school."
"I've never seen any event like this before"
"I'VE NEVER SEEN ANY EVENT LIKE THIS BEFORE"
"EVERY DETAIL OF THE DAY WAS EXQUISITELY EXECUTED"
