62 days and counting


At the Breeders' Cup, the horses aren't the only ones who strut their stuff. With two full days of the best races and the best parties, the best dress each day is a must. And while some see a racetrack, others see a runway. Both men and women alike use this event to showcase their best style, donning stylist fedoras, chic fascinators and stunning dresses and suits.

Christine A. Moore, Official Milliner of the 2013 Breeders' Cup

Christine A. Moore

Christine A. Moore founded Christine A. Moore Millinery in 1994. Making appearances on the TODAY show for the past four years and working closely with America's Best Racing to help highlight fashion at many tracks throughout the country, Christine has brought the art of millinery to life through her distinctive style, her attention to detail and her unsurpassed skills. Her wide range of styles, quality and comfort has made her one of the top hat designers in the U.S., praised for her amazing unique racing and events hats.

Each hat Christine designs starts as a still sketch, to ensure every product is unique and well concepted before beginning to build. When those sketches come to life, they are begging to be worn. From start to finish, Christine strives to make every piece unique and to create the best product possible. And as the Queen of Hats, there was no better fashion partner for the Breeders' Cup.

Christine's hats will be worn throughout the track on Nov 1 and 2 and will be sold in two locations at the track and in the Langham and Westin hotels.

Christine's What to Wear Tips

With historic Santa Anita Park as the backdrop of this event for the second year in a row, there is no better place to bring back haberdashery and sophisticated daytime dressing. Use the fall season to make a bold statement with color and fabrics and use the event as an excuse to splurge on your best outfits of 2013. Have fun, be adventurous and don't be afraid to attract a little attention!


For men, add an extra touch of class to a simple suit or a nice sport coat and slacks with a striking long or bow tie. A classic knee-length dress is a woman's best option. And with all that the Breeders' Cup has going on in the infield this year, a wedge style shoe may be a woman's best bet. Also, since the hottest color on fashion runways this fall was purple, Breeders' Cup signature hue, we expect to see a lot of this color.

Dressing to impress is part of the "West Coast Derby" experience, which warrants more extravagant fashion attire than Kentucky's annual horserace - less southern belle-ish and more refined and tailored.


Women should try wide-brimmed structured hats, and chic, frilly fascinators. "Hatinators" will be another trend, the bigger fascinators inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge. Men should play with fresh takes on the popular stingy-brim fedora.


From VIP parties to fashion contests, the Breeders' Cup hosts a full schedule of festivities. The races are just the beginning.


Don’t miss your chance to see, and be seen with, the VIP crowd as you watch the world’s finest race horses compete on the track.
