Private Edition  in Green Hills hosted the Steeplechase Holiday kick-off party.

Shoppers  dropped in to browse the beautiful Green Hills store and several were prepared with fresh faces, ready to have their makeup done by one of Private Edition’s talented makeup artists.

With appetizers and refreshments aplenty, it was a wonderful event and most shoppers left with bags full of goodies.  See photos of the event below but keep reading for a not-to-be-missed Black Friday sale for Steeplechase 2017 tickets.

For the first time ever, the Volunteer State Horsemen’s Foundation will allow longtime patrons and newcomers alike to purchase significantly discounted tickets for the 2017 Iroquois Steeplechase, to be held on Saturday, May 13 at Percy Warner Park in Nashville. The sale will run from Black Friday, Nov. 25, through Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, Three types of tickets will be offered at a reduced rate for five days only, and quantities of certain tickets are limited.

The infield is divided into six areas: Centerfield, Midfield, The Stretch, Topside, The Turn and The Meadows. Each 13’ x 18’ tailgating space (with the exception of The Meadows, where spaces are 20’ x 27’) includes armbands for eight people and two parking passes. During the post-Thanksgiving sale only, all tailgating spaces that were not sold last year will be $300 apiece — half off of the regular price of $600.

Infield tickets are regularly sold for $85 apiece but will be marked down to $50 for the five-day sale. Due to its great popularity of several all-inclusive tents in other areas of the race grounds, the Iroquois Steeplechase will introduce a new social tent in the infield for 2017. Located in the middle of the infield, the Fox Den is an all-inclusive, add-on option for adult racegoers to enjoy food, beverages, and entertainment from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., and can be purchased by anyone who has bought a tailgating space or infield ticket and box holders. Tickets to the Fox Den will cost $75 apiece, but as a special presale offer to coincide with the announcement of the new area, they will be sold for $50 from Black Friday through Giving Tuesday.

Additionally, anyone who purchases a ticket to the Fox Den during the five-day sale can also purchase a parking space in Lot M, conveniently located near the infield, for $25.

Those who wish to purchase tickets as a part of this special Black Friday – Giving Tuesday sale should visit Maps of the grounds and more details about the various tailgating areas are also available online at
