5/11: Steeplechase 2019

Horses, they’re so hot right now.

Everyone from our tweet-happy commander in chief to Anderson Cooper weighed in on the polarizing results from last week’s Kentucky Derby, so I guess you could say we’ve got horses running through our brains. But luckily, Steeplechase, which is celebrating its seventy-eighth race this year, is a bit more low-stakes than Churchill Downs. We really don’t see there being a controversy surrounding Nashville’s beloved local race, considering the event is just as much—if not more—about drinking in a field in fancy clothes as it is about the actual equestrian arts. And honestly, that’s our kind of sporting event.

Get all the details about this year’s Steeplechase here, and please remember, drink—and wear seersucker—responsibly.
