We kicked off Derby Weekend with the first annual running of the Bickford Derby! We had some tough competition among the jockey's and their horses. Eleanor and Trigger showed real promise and were out of the gate early. Gayle riding Giddy Up & Go were off to an early lead but couldn't keep up with the pack. The true race was between Garnet on Dolly and Leona riding Buster. The pair rode neck and neck throughout the event but Dolly pulled ahead just in time to cross the finish line! What a race!
