A little bit of Kentucky landed in Metamora Township Saturday as Banbury Cross Therapeutic Equestrian Center hosted its 23rd Annual Derby Day fund-raiser.
Banbury Cross Star Rider of the Year, Caleb Mosher, 13, of Hadley Township, rides atop Doodle Bug. Leading Doodle Bug is Banbury Director Jessica Moore (left). With them is Nathan Jerome, a volunteer side-walker.
Centered around the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Banbury's event featured silent and live auctions, chances to pick the Derby's winning horse, a parade featuring some of Banbury's horses and a fabulous dinner.
Banbury Director Jessica Moore said it was the most successful Derby Day ever as the event raised $98,000. A total of 230 people were in attendance.
