  • When you type the name “Patty Ethington” into Google, a photo appears of a Shelbyville woman in a big red hat at the 2009 Kentucky Derby.

    That photograph was taken by Associated Press photographer Patti Longmire, and it has been published in Sport Illustrated, The Boston Globe and the St. Louis Post Dispatch, as well as international publications.  

    And the hat, designed by New York designer Christine Moore, is shown as the epitome of the stylish ensembles women wear on the first Saturday in May and to the Kentucky Oaks on Friday before.

You may be headed to the track, attending a party or even planning one of our own.
