BCDerby2013

The BC Derby is billed as the “Most Beautiful Day in Racing”. Everyone is encouraged to wear their finery and yes, we are talking hats and fascinators. You will automatically be entered into the 2nd Annual Best Dressed Contest and could win a shopping spree by Jack & Jill or Baracos + Brand.  For those serious about their bets, there will be 6 Massive Stakes Races worth over $500,000 in total purse money. There will also be some local food trucks on hand including Flattop Filipino Fusion, Blue Smoke BBQ and Didi’s Greek. Local singing sensation, Cole Armour, will be performing the national anthem. Admission is free. Racing begins at 12:50 pm at the Hastings Racecourse.

DeightonCupLimitedTixThe Deighton Cup will be taking place this weekend, August 9th to 11th at the Hastings Racecourse, 188 Renfrew Street. This is sure to be an epic event with a Great Gatsby-themed lifestyle festival that celebrates style and elegance.  You will find horse racing along with fine cigars, whiskey tastings and a mint julep mixology competition. Tickets run from $25 – $75 and I hear there are only a few limited tickets available. For a full run down of the event and to view pictures from last year’s event visit Deighton Cup.
