Gettin' down and Derby

Off to the Races at The Pointe

The Kentucky Derby is one of the grandest races in the Thoroughbred industry. This year on May 6, some of the world’s greatest Thoroughbreds took center stage at Churchill Downs for the first leg of the Triple Crown. Kentucky Derby parties are synonymous with the race and are known for flashy fashions, elaborate hats, mint juleps, and delicious food.

The Pointe Restaurant and its exceptional event planning staff hosted their first annual Derby Party. From fantastic hats and colorful spring dresses to dashing bow ties and seersucker suits, the Pointe patrons decked out in Derby style!
