Dress to Support Your Breeders’ Cup Fave

Events / Travel

The Breeders’ Cup is right around the corner! Some of the best Thoroughbreds on the planet will assemble at Del Mar just outside of San Diego to compete for fame, glory, and $28 million in purse money on Nov. 3-4.

If you have a favorite in one of the races, you can show your love by incorporating the colors of the owner’s racing silks into your Breeders’ Cup look. Below are some examples, and don’t forget: if you see something you want to buy, just click the set to shop the look!


If you’re supporting the Longines World’s Best Racehorse in his quest to gain his second Breeders’ Cup Classic crown, you can show your love by donning the colors of his owner Juddmonte Farms. A sleek pink pencil skirt, subtly patterned blouse, mint heels, and pink purse and Christine A. Moore fascinator make this look Breeders’ Cup-perfect. Finish off the ensemble with an elegant Longines watch, and you’re ready to cheer Arrogate home in the Classic!

Gun Runner

Gun Runner is one of the favorites in this year’s Classic, and if you’re rooting for the handsome chestnut horse, show your support by wearing co-owner Winchell Thoroughbreds’ colors of maroon and white. I love this lace dress with structured shoulders; accessorize with a Christine A. Moore fascinator, a burgundy handbag, a pair of dainty earrings, and some stack-heel sandals that will give you support throughout Saturday’s races.

Stellar Wind

If Stellar Wind is your horse in Friday’s Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff, consider dressing in her owner Hronis Racing’s green and white colors. Start with an on-trend off-the-shoulder frock in a pretty floral; then add a pair of sandals (and also a pair of foldable flats if your feet get tired!) A gold handbag, feathery fascinator, and starburst-inspired pendant make the perfect race-day accessories to your Stellar Wind look.

Lady Eli

The Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf hopeful has gained a ton of fans for her courageous defeat of the deadly disease laminitis; and on Saturday, you can show your Lady Eli love through fashion with a dress patterned in owner Sheep Pond Partners’ pink and blue; then accessorize with layered necklaces and a bright satchel. Keep your feet happy in a pair of wedges, and then add some racing glamour to the look with a Longines watch and Christine A. Moore hat.


Gunnevera gained a lot of fans on the road to this year’s Kentucky Derby, and if he’s your horse in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, you can show your support by using his owners’ colors of red, white, and blue in your Breeders’ Cup ensemble. Don’t forget, Gunnevera is a Florida-based horse, so feel free to incorporate a tropical vibe into your look!


The plucky Mubtaahij has won fans over two continents, with wins in the UAE Derby in Dubai to his victory in this year’s Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita Park outside of Los Angeles. If he’s your horse in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, wear his chevroned colors of blue and yellow with a spot-on dress and matching bag, shoes, necklace, and Christine A. Moore fascinator. Don’t forget your blue-tinted sunglasses as the perfect punctuation for your Mubtaahij look
