DerBY

Run your race – isn’t that what they tell the jockeys (and probably whisper to the horses)? The team behind each horse plays up the strength of the horses — and you can take your Derby cue from them. This year is about finding your own style of Derby — from the fascinators to the largest hat, everything is acceptable. The attitude behind the outfit is just as important as if the colors work together. This issue offers so many ideas — both traditional and outlandish. And, You’re Off! Photo by

Sarah T. Holland is married and has two kids. She currently works as the Provider Relations Specialist for the Baptist Health Employer Solutions. Sarah loves to sing and enjoys performing around town and has competed in several national contests such as the X-Factor, American Idol, and America’s Got Talent. She has appeared on four episodes of the first season of ABC’s Nashville and will make a quick background appearance in the upcoming movie, Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She was born and raised in Louisville, and although she loves to travel and work in the entertainment industry, she says, “Louisville will always be my home.”

Derby

Brights Sherrell Hubbard, a reporter for WAVE 3 News and a Detroit native, describes herself as a “self-proclaimed foodie and hardworking single mom who likes to read.” She’ll be preparing to cover the Derby for the first time as part of her job and looks forward to picking out a dress. “This is my first derby! I’m so excited, I could burst. I love dresses and heels. I love any and all girly-girl stuff, so Derby is a perfect occasion for me. I wish it was more than once a year. I look forward to Derby hat shopping, it’s been my number one ambition since I set foot in Louisville!”

The Colors of Derby Erica Coghill is a native of Oldham County who recently moved back to Kentucky from Kansas to work as a reporter for WLKY. Last year, Erica was a red carpet correspondent at the Oscars when she made the top 10 semi-finals in a competition through mtvU and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

Hats , in the Hood

This year, Jennifer Barber and her husband, Andy, will be attending Derby for the third time. The couple, who also attended the Breeder’s Cup last year, are eager to watch the main event unfold. “Derby combines Southern hospitality with glamorous fashion, and showcases Kentucky’s deeply-rooted horse racing culture, right in the heart of Louisville. People who have never been always wonder, yes — it lives up to the hype.” Jennifer is an attorney at Frost Brown Todd and was one of the youngest recipients to receive the Business First of Louisville’s Forty Under 40 Award.

Co-owners of Clodhoppers

Kathy Reiss-Miller, 42 Kelly McDonald, 42 Co-owners of Clodhoppers, Vogue Center, Lexington Road • In the biz: Their 20th Derby • Website: clodhoppers.com

We started out as a shoe store. Our first day, we had a clipboard, a calculator, and a bank bag. Our sales slips were handwritten and we used a manual charge card imprint machine. We got lots of checks then. Now, customers pay by credit card 99 percent of the time. They are New School now: We are connected all the time.

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. We text our customers about upcoming sales or new shipments. A customer will send us of photo of their outfit to ask if they have it accessorized well. Are the shoes the right color? Does the jacket match?

Jewelry Trends:

We do a huge last-minute business the day before Derby. Out-of-towners who have

packed the wrong type of outfit — either too dressy or not warm enough. Or those who weren’t planning on going to the track but just got tickets.

More people are going to the track on the days leading up to the Derby, and the fashions get dressier as the week goes on. Now Thursday before Derby has become a popular day for business groups to attend. And, for the Oaks, always wear something pink — earrings or a bracelet.

2013

• Layering and stacking necklaces and bracelets. • Mixed metals. • Long necklaces. • Anything with an equine theme — horse heads, horse shoes.

What we know about retail is to be prepared to

change and listen to your customers. Carry stock with different price points. We have items ranging from $26 to $300. Also, be prepared to be in the store. You can’t leave the shop to someone else. We start stocking in January because by April we can’t get enough dresses in. And the weather plays such a big part at the last minute. Will you need a coat? A sweater? Best advice for Derby is to

wear comfortable shoes. Carry a wristlet purse. One with a strap so you can carry your drink, tickets, and program and not have to worry with a hand-held clutch. For hats, we work with Britni Knable, who owns Head Candi. She can design your hat to match your outfit, or we have pre-made hats and fascinators. Today’s Woman


In general, there are no rules in fashion anymore. There are trends, but no rules. You can wear what looks good on you and still be in fashion. NEW School

Wendy Lytle, 48, Owner of Apricot Lane Boutique, Westport Village • In the biz: Her third Derby • Website: apricotlanelouisville.com Apricot Lane is a motherdaughter store featuring West Coast fashions. We carry appropriate clothing for women of all ages. The shop does a huge dress business — Derby, concerts, honeymoons, cruises. And we try to keep everything priced under $100. Social media: I have one person dedicated to posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. She texts about new shipments and sales. It really works.

Trending for Spring:

In summer, Louisville women love to throw on a dress and a pair of flip-flops and go.

• Lace • Romantic florals • Asymmetrical hemlines • Sheer fabrics • Cutout designs • Short suits

Popular hues:

• Mint, peach, yellow, cream • Black and white is always in style

I have a background in fashion and worked for Neiman-Marcus. I gave a lot of thought to who I wanted my customer to be and what merchandise I wanted to carry for that customer. I have learned we can never have too many hats for Derby. And, do not run out of black or white hats. Ever. A customer can always add a flower or band that will pick up a color in her outfit to a black or white hat. We work with designer Anita Tomchek, who owns Anita’s Hats. She will design a hat to match your outfit or rework a hat you have.

Track Tips:

• For Derby, where your seats are will dictate what you wear. Millionaires Row? The Infield? Same goes for a Derby party. Some are quite lavish, and some parties are casual backyard barbecues. • Best Derby accessory is Sunglass “readers.” Great for reading the small print on the racing form on a sunny Derby Day. • If you don’t wear a pair of comfortable shoes to the Derby, do have a pair of flip-flops in your purse. We were licensed this year to carry TOMS Shoes — flats and wedges. We also carry Yellow Box flip-flops. • For Oaks, wear something pink. If not your dress, then a statement necklace or a clutch.

SURVIVAL SKILLS

Persistence Breeds Success Nancy Dillman

Written by Marie Bradby Photography by Daniel Sigal

Thoroughbred Horse Breeder

Nancy Dillman’s success as a Thoroughbred horse breeder proves that less is more. With only four brood mares, Nancy has been producing winners at her small 44-acre Stonegate Farm in eastern Jefferson County for 30 years. Her most celebrated foal, Havre de Grace, which she sold as a yearling in 2007 for $380,000, was named “Horse of the Year” in 2011. After four years of racing and winning Grade I stakes, “Gracie’s” owners sold her at auction in the Fasig-Tipton Sales in Lexington, Ky., in November 2012 for a record $10 million. “I have been very lucky to have so few mares and have the success that I’ve had,” says Nancy. “It’s always good to have good luck. People keep saying, ‘Why her? She only has three mares.’ But Mother Nature has been good to me. You just have to have perseverance and believe in yourself and believe in your program.” A native of upstate New York, Nancy grew up in a horse-riding family. “Little girls fall in love with horses and sometimes never fall out of love with horses,” she says, laughing. Years ago, she traveled often to show hunter-jumper horses, but her husband, physician Carl Dillman, suggested she start breeding in order to stay closer to home. “I don’t think he thought I would continue on in the business as long as I did. It’s been very rewarding for us,” she says, adding that she has traveled to Europe and the Mideast to see her horses race.

Diminuendo, a filly that Nancy bred and sold as a yearling to Sheikh Mohammed, became an English and Irish champion. “She won the equivalent of the English Oaks and a variety of other races. That was great fun.” Nancy also keeps retired mares and foals that don’t sell, which she races. She’s concerned that race purses in Kentucky are no longer competitive with those in other states. Because of gambling, race tracks in other states are able to offer higher purses. “I hope that one day that will be fixed. (Governor) Steve Beshear is working hard on it,” she says. Nancy cherishes her mornings at her farm, making her rounds with her Jack Russell terrier. “I’m at the barn at 7 a.m. unless I’m at the track — Churchill Downs — if I have horses running. I’ve got to go with my coffee and greet everybody and see how the evening went. I check the schedule as to inoculations, find out when the farrier’s coming. Typically I have about 18 horses on the place.” She’s concerned about her horses’safety and checks the fields for branches, holes, or anything that could cause injury. For the winter, her horses are shipped off to various places so she can rest her pastures. The pregnant mares are sent to Mill Ridge Farm in Lexington so they’ll be close to the Haygard Equine Medical Institute, a state-of-the art hospital. “If anything happens to the foal in the foaling process, hopefully, they will be safe. The distance of the hospital from Louisville is too far.” A “snowbird,” Nancy heads off to Key Largo, where she works on her accounting and farm books. For the future, Nancy plans to develop the line of her top brood mare, Easter Bunnette, dame of Gracie. “That means I would keep her fillies rather than selling them…and race and breed them. It’s a big commitment financially. I figure I have a good 20 years left. Some people say now’s the time to cash in, but for me, it’s not about the money. I don’t think I could ever produce Gracie again, but why not try?” Here are Nancy’s tips on life:

Rule #1: Don’t doub t yourself.

You have to have belief in yourself and the stre ngt h to push through even when it looks like you aren’t headed in the right dir ect ion. You have to pro ceed and see that failures are learni ng experiences.

# 3: Rule’t be Don id of afra , because riskan’t achieve

Q & BeBrave A Do

Your Thing

Interview by Holly Gregor Photography by Melissa donald

Kate Richards wilt: Auction It was the time to say, ‘OK, all this has happened. co-chair of this year’s “Race For Grace.” You got my attention, Lord. What do you want?’ When we get dragged into the negative things in life, it’s hard to be creative in a positive way. I accepted the things that happened. When one door closes, another one opens.

Kate Richards Wilt is the auction co-chair of this year’s Race For Grace, the main fundraiser for the Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy (KRTC). This organization tends to the religious, spiritual, and physical needs of the backside workers at Churchill Downs. It also offers individual counseling and a health clinic, runs a food pantry, supplies donated clothes, and helps with transportation.

Some people don’t get past the anger. What makes you different?

I’m no different. You have a basic choice. You can either wallow in it or you can say, ‘I accept what You’re saying. You’re right, Lord. I’m going to get on with it. And You are going to help me.’

How did you get involved with the Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy?

What do you want people to know?

My journey with the Chaplaincy really began in 2012. I lost a ton of money on my company, My Racing Heart Coffee. The same year I had to put two of my dogs down, one right after the other. Steve, my husband, almost died in surgery, and my brother died suddenly. It’s the type of thing that makes you think. ‘Lord, what do you want?’ It just came to me. I had already been involved in KRTC.

I want them to know there is a village (at the backside of the track). And that it takes a team to get a horse ready to go on the track and that a lot of those team members are people they don’t see on television. These people have needs. Many of them don’t have transportation, so they don’t have the capability of doing the normal things like going to the barber shop, shopping for dinner, or going to church. So what we try to do is bring those services here to them. We try to give them a bit of spiritual support and human services. There are still things that need to be done.

What has happened since you started volunteering for KRTC? I just love it! It’s satisfying when you’re doing what you really want to do. You realize you do have something that’s special. It underscores that. Sometimes women are put into situations in corporations, even with other women, when you learn defense rather than advocacy and you have to constantly question the uniqueness of your idea or concept or your artistry or

I vividly remember nine years ago when a group of women who worked together at YUM! conceived the idea of auctioning gently used hats to raise funds to fight breast cancer. They called us, and Today’s Woman was instantly on board to help promote the event. Hats for Hope has grown in the number of hats and attendees every year since and is now held at The Galt House Grand Ballroom. You will find not only hundreds of amazing gently worn hats, but also new designer hats. It’s a great girls’ night out watching everyone try on hats and bidding to snatch that one perfect hat. hatsforhopelouisville.org

Your Life?

Already a member of the Floyd County YMCA, Maggie Helton and her husband would work out together, but really ymcasi.org needed guidance on a training regiment to help lose weight 812.283.9622 and gain strength, muscle, and balance. A trainer to help Trainer: Allison Hilles guide and set up a training schedule that is supervised for safety is exactly what Maggie needed. Like everyone in the program, Maggie’s goal was to lose weight. She also wanted to train for a trip hiking the Grand Canyon from top to bottom, which she just returned from. Maggie, her husband and a few friends hiked 18 miles round trip from the top of the canyon down to the bottom. “Alli really helped me train for this trip. I was amazed at how well I did hiking both down and back up the Grand Canyon. I think hiking down is a lot harder than hiking up because you really need to have good balance when going down steep terrain.” Balance is so important in our everyday lives, and it is something that we all tend to take for granted. Alli creates workout sets for Maggie, starting her out on an elliptical machine for 5-10 minutes. Then moving to lower and upper body exercises, some incorporating weights, such as squats and lunges. This set is followed with about two minutes of cardiovascular work on a treadmill. Then the focus moves to different lower and upper body muscle groups, incorporating back exercises and chin-ups. Another round of cardiovascular on the treadmill and then the session wraps up with smaller muscle groups such as working the biceps and triceps. Each muscle group gets a work out each session with short rounds of cardiovascular work in between each set. In all each work out burns fat, and increases strength, balance, and endurance. Like all great trainers, Allison ends her sessions with stretches. Maggie has already reached her goal weight for the program. She is now working on her “it would be nice” weight. Let’s see if she can achieve that by the end of the program.

Iron Body Fitness is circuit training incorporating weights, resistance bands and body weight resistance activities. It primarily utilizes kettle bells into several different exercises and poses and focuses on gaining core and muscle strength, loosing fat, and increasing focus and balance. Owner, trainer and author of three fitness books, Dave Randolph, is passionate about Iron Body Fitness and applies his knowledge to the daily training schedule. “The hour really moves along quickly and before you know it, your workout is over, it really doesn’t feel like you are here for an hour, says Lizzet Verdi, who has been paired with Iron Body Fitness. “Dave knows his stuff and is always available for questions and makes sure your form is correct. He wants you to be successful and makes sure you are doing the exercises correctly.” Each workout begins and ends with stretching, and as the sets progress throughout the workout, so does the intensity level. “If it hurts, then don’t do it,” says Dave, “or we can alter the pose.” Lizzet’s knees give her trouble, so when she does squat exercises, Dave shows her how to alter a squat so she doesn’t hurt herself. Dave writes on a blog about fitness and nutrition, giving advice on food to eat and avoid. He also writes about how the body works and how to properly execute various exercises.

Lizzet does squats, two-handed arm swings, push ups (no girl push ups allowed), planks, arm band pulls, and a slew of other exercises and poses when she is working out at Iron Body Fitness. Today’s Woman

orses and jockeys galloping around Churchill Downs won’t be the only ones working up a sweat around Derby Day. Thanks to the Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF), fitness enthusiasts will also have several fun opportunities to get moving during the month of April. “Over the past few years, Festival fans and their families have shown a growing interest in getting in shape and being healthy,” says Aimee Boyd, VP of Communications for the KDF. “That’s evident just by the incredible growth of our marathon and miniMarathon, now reaching 18,000 runners. We’ve worked to add events onto our schedule like the Zumba Fitness Jam and Anthem Healthy Lifestyle Showcase, which appeal to that growing demographic.” • On Saturday, April 27, the Derby Marathon and miniMarathon will kick off its 39th year bright and early at 7:30 a.m. Participants also take a lap around the infield of Churchill Downs.

Food at Kentucky Derby time has it own flavor, and besides the famous Derby Pie and Mint Julep, it all depends on where you spend your Derby Celebration — at Churchill Downs, hosting a party, or pitching in at your friend’s potluck. Boxed Lunches for the Track The prepared track-goer should consider putting in her order for one of the many boxed lunches around town. We went to sample Cheddar Box’s lunches, which start at $9. The price of each box depends on additional items you want to include. Green salads are available as well, starting at $5.50. An additional $3 is added for grilled chicken. All items are made in-house, from the dressings to the sauces, salads, and desserts. Box Lunch option number three, the Derby Cheddar Box winner (pictured), holds the popular bow-tie pasta, beef tenderloin sandwich with house-made sauce, and fresh fruit for $14. For dessert, check out their top-selling Mint Brownie. My favorite is the turkey sandwich with their house-made mango chutney. Due to track regulations, all boxed lunches must be stored in a clear container. The container here is one that is used for all The Cheddar Box lunch menu items. PAGe 68

Moving Water

WaterStep, a local nonprofit organization that works to save lives at risk from waterborne illness around the world, is asking runners and walkers at the marathon and miniMarathon to bring awareness to the world water crisis. Race participants can: • Wear a free WaterStep t-shirt during the race (the Tshirt is bright yellow and features a single footprint on the back) • Donate used shoes (athletic or not) to WaterStep at the Running Wild Expo, which is held at the Kentucky International Convention Center on April 25 and 26. (WaterStep’s shoe recycling program raises money to help cover its operating costs.) Contact: 502.568.6342 or waterstep.org.

Human Trafficking at Derby

Just Ask Joyce

By Ilyse McCormick

You have time to grow your own mint in time for the Kentucky Derby. To grow mint, take a cutting (cut a stalk of mint and put it in a container filled with soil) and it grows easily in a month. Besides using it in Mint Juleps, you can use it in tea. 72

April

2013

I don’t enjoy coming home anymore. Home used to be a refuge after a long day at work, but now it is no longer.

Q:

We are nicer to strangers than we are to each other. The kids are constantly at each others’ throats. My husband is grouchy most of the time. Any suggestions for how we can create a pleasant atmosphere in our home again or are we too far gone?

It is hard to believe that human trafficking is a major problem in this area. But all over Kentucky, innocent victims are being forced into a modernday form of slavery. The term “human trafficking,” according to Robin Valenzuela, family advocate at the Center for Women and Families, is “any use of force, fraud, and/or coercion for the use of sexual exploitation or forced labor.” Kentucky’s human trafficking problem is complex. Given the great amount of horse farms and the vast equestrian community, more of Kentucky’s trafficking victims are forced labor victims, rather than sex victims. These laborers are sequestered to isolated farms in the middle of rural Kentucky and forced to work for no pay. According to Valenzuela, who is a part of the Louisville Human Trafficking Task Force, human trafficking spikes dramatically during Kentucky Derby weekend. Traffickers are known to flock to events that draw people looking to spend their money on “entertainment.” Big events such as the Superbowl and World Cup are saturated with human trafficking, and the Derby is no different. Local groups, such as the Louisville Human Trafficking Task Force and their partner, the Catholic Charities of Louisville, led a successful campaign last Derby called SOAP. A bar of soap labeled with a trafficking hotline number and information for human trafficking victims was placed in every major hotel bathroom. This Derby, the task force is running a similar campaign using lipgloss instead of soap. The Louisville Human Trafficking Task Force runs off donations and helped 150 victims of human trafficking last year (44 of them children) with everything from counseling to employing a full emergency response plan.

The event will include wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction of Derby hats, fascinators, handbags and jewelry which will all have been donated by local celebrities and designers. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Hosparus of Louisville, an organization that provides comfort and support for patients and their families when a lifelimiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments.

No Derby party is complete without a well-made mint julep. Award-winning mixologist Joy Perrine will show you how to make an undeniably tasty mint julep drink at the Juleps: Mint & More event. Learn to make the classic mint julep, strawberry, peach, and chocolate juleps as well as other insider tips.

Chris Whelan

Job: Chairwoman of the Kentucky Derby Festival (VP of

Communications for LG&E & KU Energy LLC)

lives in: Simpsonville, KY

While the Kentucky Derby Festival events may seem to spring upon us as quickly as the season does, Chris Whelan, chairwoman of this year’s KDF, knows the real deal behind the planning that is involved. Chris, who works for LG&E and KU Energy as the vice president of communications, has served on the KDF board since 2006. “Fortunately, by the time you become the chair, you will have served as vice chair and chair-elect and have several years of experience,” she says. Since 2006, Chris has held several leadership positions and says that community service has always been important for her. “I am fortunate that LG&E and KU believe that in order to be a good corporate citizen, it’s important to give back to the communities they serve. So, they are completely supportive of my role as the 2013 chair and are a major contributor to the Festival as a sponsor of Thunder and the Go Green effort.” Favorite KDF event of mine: “If I had to choose one, it would be Thunder because it is such a spectacular event for the Festival and Kentucky. Not only is it fun and entertaining, but it brings in $56 million in economic impact to this region.” DERBY Fashion I’m Wearing: “I’m still in search of this year’s outfit, but I seem to have more luck purchasing the hat first. Dillard’s is the Festival’s official hat sponsor this year, so I’ll be stopping in there. We’re also very fortunate in Louisville to have terrific locally owned shops and boutiques that carry great lines.” Latest Purchase I’m Praising: “My new farm by Overview Builders. I told them I had to be moved in before the Festival events really kicked up!”

Before I Go...“Whether I’m headed to the track or one of the Kentucky Derby Festival

events, I just try to plan for the circumstances. For example, Thunder is a long day...you may need sunscreen or a light jacket, but by the time the fireworks start, you usually need a hat and gloves. As for Derby and Oaks, we all take our flip flops, Band-Aids, and a poncho in the event our cute high heels become uncomfortable or the weather turns rainy.”
