Sacksen and Martin Best Dressed at Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event

The first awards given out at this year’s Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by Land Rover aren’t for performance, but rather, fashion. Allie Sacksen and Boyd Martin took home the Dubarry of Ireland ‘Best Dressed’ award during Wednesday evening’s welcome reception. They each earned a new pair of Dubarry boots as the best-dressed female and male riders at the first horse inspection, held on Wednesday afternoon. Danny Hulse, from Dubarry of Ireland, presented the fashionable waterproof boots to them.

Martin, 37, of West Grove, Pa., jogged his mounts Steady Eddie and Crackerjack in a sharp tweed jacket, with a bold printed shirt, contrasting tie and freshly polished cordovan shoes. Sacksen, 27, of Somerset, Pa., wore a glittering lavender lace dress with a cream-colored fascinator and matching shoes that contrasted perfectly with her sparkling white mount Sparrow’s Nio.

Known as the “Best Weekend All Year,” the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Land Rover is being held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, April 27-30.
