Season of steeplechases and hat competitions

Last weekend’s Little Everglades Steeplechase, a do-not-miss social occasion (now in its seventh year), held north of Dade City, Florida, was a great success. Hartford York - Men's Biltmore Dress Straw Porkpie Hat - The Ponies At The Gate

Hats off to ranch owners, Bob and Sharon Blanchard, who donate the proceeds of the day to charities.

About $95,000 in prize money was on the line in the six nationally sanctioned steeplechase races, with the top stakes race paying $35,000.

Other attractions included Jack Russell terrier races and shopping in the vendor’s village for such items as hat pins (that cost as much as $50 each) and of course participating in the afternoon’s hat competition–a colorful and eclectic display.

Wonder if men are invited to compete for Best Hat?

Thanks for riding,
Steve Singer
CEO Hartford York
