It’s often called the most exciting two minutes in sports. The 144th running of the Kentucky Derby is this Saturday. It’s a race known for betting, mint juleps and big BIG hats. You could also call it the best people watching event in the entire world. Those hats became larger, brighter and more extravagant in the 60’s when the Derby could be seen all over the country on television. Those statement pieces are a must, even if you’re not a Churchill Downs. MOA Trend Expert Sara Rogers stopped by with Kentucky Derby Fashion.
