There’s only one time a year when obnoxiously big hats & puffy dresses are encouraged in So Florida & it’s for its premier annual derby the Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park.

I’ve been lucky enough to DJ this special event since it’s inception in 2017 & every year truly gets better! Back performing for VIP ticket holders in the Flamingo Room, this year the room collaborated with Faena’s cabaret show “Tryst” for small performances in between DJ sets & culinary provided by the highly anticipated LA transplant, Delilah. Of course, the room is also setup for live viewing of the race… but let’s face it, we’re really only there for the music & drinks!

The day long event started at 10am for me & lasted way until sundown when the derby turns into a full on concert on the track. This year’s line-up was a 90’s throwback with performances by Ja Rule, Lil Kim & Mase. Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day with the weather dropping down to 60 degrees (the wind however, was not favorable to hats!)

Thank you to 1/st Entertainment for adding me to the line-up, already looking forward  to (and planning attire for) next year!
