I have always been a fan of horse racing, since I was that weird little girl reading the Daily Racing Form. When we got married, California Chrome was running for the Triple Crown. About 30 of us took a break from dancing at the reception to watch the race on my friend’s iphone.
With American Pharoah running the way he was, I convinced Nate that we should go to the Belmont. First anniversary is paper, so Nate got us tickets!
I wore this beautiful Kate Spade Dress, and picked up this hat and daisy headband from the Macys in Time Square. We had a ball betting on races and drinking Belmont Jewels (The signature cocktail of the Belmont Stakes).
Nate is wearing a lavender seersucker blazer from Ralph Lauren, madras pants from Vineyard Vines and this gorgeous green Breuer tie. Our friend Dan Mayer came along to see the race!

We have a glorious winner! 37 years of waiting and it was a stunning victory!
Me and Nate at the Belmont!
