The Derby Day is on Sunday 12th April with great sponsorship from Salama Fikira, Etihad Airways, NIC Bank, Bob Morgan Security, The Star Newspaper, Bridging The World, Safarilink and a host of other businesses (see poster) combining together to produce a great “ Day at the Races”
The Derby is the premier race of the season here in Kenya as it is in other parts of the world.
A race to produce the champion 3 year old horse over 1 ½ miles (2400m).
Horses that are carrying equal weights apart for a small allowance for the female of the species (who can carry 1 ½ kgs less than the 57 kgs given to the colts and geldings). This weight is the combination of the jockey plus the saddle he uses to ride.
In addition to great racing — every half hour through the afternoon there will be fun events and plenty of food and beverage outlets.
COME AND ENJOY THE DAY — AN EXCITING EVENT!
