PHOTOS: Under The VIP Tent at The Hampton Classic

Politicians, celebrities, philanthropists and more come out to Grand Prix Sunday.

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, "Real Housewife" Jill Zarin, Peter Cook, Rosanna Scotto and James Lipton were just a few of the high profile figures under the VIP tent during the $250,000 FTI Grand Prix on Sunday at the Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton.

I thought I saw Kirk Douglas. Was he there?

No one so explicitly demonstrates the decline of our society as well as the "Housewives"

Hazel, at last we agree -- but the "Housewives" are all voting for boy Obama! Wake up folks -- go see "2016" + do NOT vote democrat again. GO MITT!!

We agree you Tea-Hater !!!!!!!!!!

Christie, the day I agree with you is the day they make me your roommate at the asylum.

To think Mayor Bloomberg once said he wasn't a Hampton's type guy, he looks like one now.

Can we please have a report on the size of the beverage(s) the mayor was ingesting. We would also like to know if there were large sizes being served anywhere at the Hamptons Classic and if so, what if any criticism was laid at the feet of the caterers and organizers for offering large beverages. Thank you.

See, you two, what good does it get you to try and be civil (for a split second) with these people. They do not stop, not for a second and neither should you.

Naturally, Christie Nicolle would rise to the occasion with the r piles of steaming manure at the horse show. On what basis does "it" declare that everyone at the horse show is voting for Obama? "It's" Mitt-lust cannot be contained. On a non-scientific basis I would hazard a guess that more Republicans attend horse shows than Democrats because it is a rich man's sport, and they are probably planning to vote for Romney-Ryan ticket because they protect their interests above all else. Someone give "Christie Nicolle" a carrot and put "it" out to pasture.

Looks like a lot of the evil rich 1%, was Occupy Wall Street there?
Preliator September 04, 2012 at 07:57 PM
There is a Hazel joke here but I am not going to say it, I am trying to be nice.
christie nicolle September 04, 2012 at 09:32 PM
The Left has spread a false mythology that the rich are all republicans.... What about Hollywood rich elites, the Kennedys, Sorros, etc. ??

You AND your comments are very tired.

I'm so happy that the Hamptons Classic was a wonderful success. We so enjoyed having so many distinguished visitors out here playing in our delightful neighborhood. I would like to suggest, however, that the Classic pursue a less insular agenda in the years to come. We have a plethora of excellent restaurants that could accommodate the entirely of the Classic's assemblage without the necessity of having victuals provided in tents onsite. Likewise, the numerous purveyors of fine vintages and spirits could satisfy the palates of the most discriminating of Classic attendees without the necessity of carting beverages to the equestrian events themselves. Additionally, why mount an event in a milieu famous for its beaches without taking advantage of its most important attribute? A first-class littoral equestrian event (a race[?]), sponsored by the Classic would be a marvelous addition to its agenda and an opportunity for locals to be exposed to the wonderful ambiance of thoroughbred competition. There are SO many other equestrian endeavors that the Classic could sponsor that would provide even more exhilarating experiences for its guests and gainful employment for local residents.

A couple of days of hard rain is what we really need out here right now. One giant "flush.". Goodbye horsies, hamsters, helicopters, cidiots, August people, stogie chomping, fedora wearing guests of guests and gypsy cab drivers. Back to the city. Stash the whites and fill the walk-in closet with the black wardrobe. It's time for the east end to breathe again.
