Lexington, KY - Every year riders in the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by Bridgestone, get dressed up for the weekend's first competition, the Dubarry Style Award. The prize, determined by a panel of judges, is given to the best-dressed woman and the best-dressed man at Wednesday afternoon's first horse inspection.
This year the winners were Lauren Kieffer of Middleburg, VA, and Peter Atkins, who lives in Reddick, FL, but is an Australian native and still rides for his home country. Both won a pair of Dubarry Galway boots.
Once again this year, Dubarry dressed Tara Ziegler for the first horse inspection. (Ziegler was, therefore, excluded from the judging process). Ziegler wore a stylish outfit that previews the highly anticipated launch of Dubarry's Fall 2010 clothing collection in the United States. She wore a Yarrow jacket with Buttercup shorts, both in Dubarry's own Connacht Meadow tweed, together with Dubarry's Chamomile ruffle shirt and a pair of iconic Dubarry Galway boots.
The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by Bridgestone, is America's only four-star competition and is a member of the HSBC Classic Series. The world's best horses and riders vie for $250,000 in prize money and the coveted Rolex Championship.
This year NBC has expanded its television coverage of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event from 60 to 90 minutes. The program will air on Saturday, May 15, from 3:00 to 4:30 EDT, just prior to the Preakness Stakes.
