Rob Owens annual Harlem Derby Events seem to evolve each year (minus 2020) into a full blown Harlem happening occasion where everyone is dressed their Harlem Best!

The annual Harlem Derby Event this year kicks off with the Harlem Derby Music Festival honoring black jockeys and horsemen.

Of course all of the beautiful & handsome harlemites came out to the music fest. The ladies hats and dresses are a big deal at the annual derby events, as one pretty young lady or dashing gent can win the Best dressed Award!
