Derby night supports the EAGM

A night at the races proved to be a popular event on Saturday night.

The Estevan Art Gallery and Museum hosted its annual Estevan Derby hobby horse night fundraiser at the Estevan Exhibition Association’s building.  About 40 horses were entered by local businesses and organizations.

Hobby horses were well-decorated and many of the participants were dressed in jockey or horse racing attire. Some of them named their horses. The horse-and-rider tandems advanced down a board based on the number that was drawn. 

Those in attendance could also wager on the horse of their choice.

The top two finishers from each of the four heats advanced to the final. The winning team was from Finning Cat. 

Proceeds from the Estevan Derby will be directed towards the EAGM’s programming efforts.
