Mystery Synopsis:

The Louisville Derby, otherwise known as The Run for Red Roses, is a famous horse race held annually in Louisville, Kentucky. The long-awaited day at Gotham Downs is just around the corner. Not known for camaraderie within the box seats of Millionaire’s Row, many of the thoroughbred owners have jaded histories together. Bad business deals, betrayal, and retaliations have recently plagued the members of the elite circle so this year at the Gotham Downs Gala, look out for mayhem.

Nevertheless, the paddocks are ready, the silks are pressed, and the horses are dying to get to the starting gate. It’s time to shop for stunning apparel for the big night, as your foes will never outshine you. This is where your story begins.
