Two Americans are starting their weekend with at least one prize already in hand as they were awarded best dressed by Dubarry of Ireland.
The first horse inspection is a chance for the riders to “strut their stuff” along with their horses, and the best dressed man and woman from Wednesday’s inspection were awarded a pair of Dubarry boots at the evening’s welcome party held at the famed Fasig-Tipton sales pavilion.
This year’s best dressed man was William Coleman whose classic ensemble was topped off by a jaunty cap and the best dressed woman was Meghan O’Donoghue who paired a classic pair of boots and leggings with a unique checkerboard highlighted jacket.
