Forget your Derby or Oaks hat? Men or women might find a perfect Scala hat at Churchill Downs.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hats are as much a part of the Kentucky Derby as the horses. A chic hat is essential for any woman strolling the clubhouse, the paddock or even the infield.

Dorfman Pacific makes Scala hats and fascinators, which are sold at Churchill Downs. Company spokesman Debra Highsmith says many hat brands from Dorfman Pacific for both men and women are sold year-round in the Kentucky Derby Museum store at the track.

The combination of the "sport of kings" and the garden-party atmosphere make for a special weekend. So naturally, when it comes to hats, the more formal and more festive Derby crowd is looking for something different and much dressier than year-round visitors to the track.
