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"

 

MALCOLM PARRY

"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"

 

FRED LEE

"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."

ROBYN JESSON

"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"

 

ERIN CEBULA

"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"

 

MEDIA BLOG

"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"

RICK CHEUNG

"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."

 

ANDREA GRANT

"I've never seen any event like this before"

"THE ESSENCE OF RACES FROM DECADES PAST"

THE JULEP

THE COCKTAIL JOCKEY MIXOLOGY COMPETITION

PRESENTED BY BULLET BOURBON

The Deighton Cup is proud to introduce an event that celebrates the most famous libation of the track ­ the mint julep. The perfect Southern Summer refreshment, this fabulous cocktail dates back to the early 1800s. Your mouth waters at the first sight of the dripping condensation down the traditional silver julep cup.

 

The Deighton Cup and its Hosts, along with Bulliet Bourbon, are inviting the crème-de-la-crème of mixologists, barmen, and aspiring booze hounds to enjoy a live competition as entrants create their best variation on this classic indulgence. Ensuring excellence, the event will be judged by select industry professionals and a panel of cocktail-savvy media.

 

The prize? Racetrack fame, bragging rights and $1,000 cash for first place. Other special surprises are also in store for contestants. Space is limited to 10 hopefuls. Please contact Tyson Villeneuve for further details.
