Race of the Regions – Derby Update

Apr 27, 2022 | News

As of this Wednesday, April 27, the Regions have raised over $5,000 to benefit the important resources The Foundation provides.

The Southern Region’s Bees Knees came out of the gates strong, leaping to the lead with Southeast Region’s Sweet Virginia on the filly’s heals. Is the south working together to win the Derby? Only the future will tell.

Great Lakes’ Per Stirrups has just dashed in front of Western Region’s Timber Jim and HoA’s Heart of America, who are neck-and-neck. Don’t count the back of the pack out! Mid-Atlantic’s 50 Shades of Hay, Rocky Mountain’s Canyon’s Edge and New England’s Love that Copper Penny are building up speed!
