57th Annual Fillies Derby Ball

One of the Kentucky Derby Festival’s oldest and most elegant events, the 57th annual Fillies Derby Ball, was held April 19 at the Galt House Hotel.

The Fillies, Inc. hosted the formal event, which was themed “Galloping with the Fillies” and included cocktails, dinner and dancing. During the ball, the Derby Festival Queen was chosen by the traditional spin of the wheel. The Royal Court was also established with the four remaining princesses, two handmaidens, two pages and four newly-knighted outstanding citizens of the community. Lynda Lambert and George Lindsey of the “Lambert & Lindsey” morning radio show on 102.3 The Max served as emcees. The Crashers also performed.

Proceeds from the event benefited the Kentucky Derby Festival Foundation.
