Lovely hats are a quintessential part of horseracing. Since Kegasus has joined Preakness, we offer him some suggestions for looking his best this weekend. Princess Beatrice's now-infamous hat from the April 29 royal wedding is currently available on eBay, with the money to be donated to UNICEF and Children in Crisis. Surely Kegasus wants to help out, right?

Then again, a jaunty top hat could be the way to go -- after all, Abe Lincoln's famous topper is on display at the Smithsonian. Kegasus could do the style one better in hot pink with black lace and a big ol' pink rose.

Kegasus might want something a bit more stately for his official publicity shots. A straw bowler with a simple accent could be the way to go. We recommend checking out Proper Topper on Connecticut Avenue.

If he gets a bit cold on the infield, Kegasus could put on a shirt... or he could just try out a warmer hat. Aretha Franklin's sure looked toasty on Inauguration Day in 2009.

OK, so Kegasus is no Johnny Depp, but a "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"-style topper would probably look good on pretty much anyone. Yeah, even Kegasus.
