Chris Barnstable-Brown, one of the event's organizers, previously told PEOPLE that Dannielynn "looked gorgeous" while wearing her "homage" to Jackson. "She is getting so tall," he added of the teen. "She's almost as tall as her dad now."

"It's that time of year again," Larry captioned a series of three photos on Instagram of himself and Dannielynn. Larry Birkhead/Instagram "The @kentuckyderby weekend is here!" continued Larry. "Even though our favorite event The Barnstable-Brown Party won't be back until next year, we decided to head out on this beautiful day to Churchill Downs racetrack in preparation for The Kentucky Derby." "Dannielynn 'finished first' in her @jovanifashions pantsuit and a beautiful white flowered fascinator. She said she wanted to wear something entirely different than she had in the past. I guess that means no more 'little girl' dresses??" the proud dad concluded. "She cleaned out the chocolate brownies, ice cream and nachos while at the same time critiquing my outfit. 🤷♂️"
