Long before there were fashion shows with catwalks, ladies of elegance attended the races where women of stature strutted their latest fashions, including those trademark hats. Times have changed, and so has fashion, but this long-standing tradition has not. On September 18th, 2009, Emerald Downs hosted Hats and Heels Ladies Night at the Races benefitting Ronald McDonald House of Western Washington and Alaska. Nearly 300 ladies enjoyed an evening of exclusive shopping, fun, food and wine (and hopefully a few lucky bets on the ponies too!).
