Race of the Regions Update – Win, Place or Show?

May 4, 2022 | News

Unbelievable! Farhad Aghdami, representing the Southeast Region on Sweet Virginia, is making hay in his flashy riding silks on his SECOND run around the track. Will he be able to reach $6,000 and round the track twice? Who will place and show in this year’s Derby? Your donation, large or small, will move your region closer to the finish line.

The Great Lakes’ John Furniss on Per Stirrups is almost two-thirds of the way to the finish line. Will he place?

Nearly tied for third and the coveted show position are Miriam Henry on Bees Knees and Jeff Peetz on Heart of America. Southern Fellows, show your support for Miriam and Bees Knees now! Your donation moves her a few lengths forward! And Heart of America Fellows, show your encouragement with a donation to the ACTEC Foundation to support Jeff on Heart of America today!

But don’t forget the back of the pack – there’s plenty of time for the Rocky Mountain’s Stephanie Tuthill on Canyon’s Edge, Western’s Josh Husbands on Timber Jim and the Mid-Atlantic’s Tara Pleat on 50 Shades of Hay to move into the winner’s circle! And, New England, Janet Moore on Love That Copper Penny stumbled out of the starting gate and is ready to sprint past the pack. Show you support to help Love That Copper Penny roll to the finish line.
