And we’re off!! Announcing the debut of Rent the Races, a brand new online hat and fascinator rental concept. Now live and accepting orders for fall’s most important racing events, the Rent the Races site offers exquisite selections from top of the line milliners from across the globe.
Clients are able to go online, pick their perfect hat from a carefully curated selection, and arrange delivery directly to a home or hotel prior to race day. Taking the stress out finishing an outfit off with the perfect accessory. For those in the area, the Lexington, Kentucky based business also offers convenient local pickup. Rent the Races carries the very best in modern millinery, including hats and fascinators from Carol Kennelly, Rachel Black, and Lisa Carey.
After realizing how impossibly expensive it was to purchase right hat for all the various events throughout the seasons, Lexington, Kentucky locals Catherine Kenneally, Katie Hughes, and Mary Catherine White founded Rent the Races. The trio wanted to make beautiful hats and fascinators affordable and available to women of all ages, all the while encouraging, promoting, and supporting the racing and thoroughbred industry.
"Few things are better than a gorgeous day at the races, whether you're at Keeneland, Saratog, or Santa Anita," said Catherin Kenneally, co-founder of Rent the Races. "Being able to don an incredible hat that you might not normally treat yourself to just makes it that much better, and Rent the Races is able to make that happen no matter what event you might be attending."
For an equine industry insider, or a first time meet attendee, Rent the Races steps in to create an unforgettable experience from head to toe. Even if a client knows more about Manolos than Monarchos, Rent the Races allows everyone to be a part of the tradition and excitement of racing.
Rent the Races is doing more than just encouraging patrons to get dressed up, get out, and head to the track, they also support various equine related charities. The land, the jockey, and the horse are all equally important pieces of the thoroughbred industry and Rent the Races is proud to support Bluegrass Conservancy, Permanently Disabled Jockey’s Fund, and Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
