H&H Party

The Social at QP16

Melissa Grelo (@melissagrelo), Cynthia Loyst (@cynthialoyst), Lainey Lui (@LaineyGossip), and Jess Allen (@jessieraeallen), stars of the popular Canadian daytime talk show The Social, will reprise their hosting duties for this year’s edition of the Hats & Horseshoes Party, on July 3, Queen’s Plate day at Woodbine Racetrack.

Taking place in The Socia​l Lounge, an exclusive tent at Hats & Horseshoes, the ladies will keep guests informed on the full complement of activities happening at the party, provide commentary on the day's fashion statements, discuss style trends they see, and speak with the many high-profile sponsors of the event. From interviews on the pink carpet to engaging discussions on all the stylish goings on, the Millinery Design Competition, and the Fashion at the Races Contest, to coverage with the Plate-winning jockey and horse, The Social co-hosts have all the excitement covered.

From High Fashion to Fast Action, don't miss the pomp and thrill of the Queen's Plate.
