The members of Rocky Fork Headley Hunt celebrated the 2017 running of the Kentucky Derby with a gathering at The Old Horseshoe Inn in Johnstown Ohio that is owned and operated by hunt members, Dave and Susan Straub. Members enjoyed a lovely buffet and signature drinks served from 4:30 to 7:30 while watching the races leading up to the annual run for the roses. Two people picked the winning horse, Always Dreaming, and split a sizable cash prize.

Following the race, a contest for best Derby Day attire was held, and judges selected the best hat and best tie. It was a tough competition! The winner of the best hat was Beth for her original homemade hat that exuded scenery of Churchill downs with horses, racetrack elements and a real birds nest. The winner for the best tie was Tim with his multi-colored horse tie. Winners were awarded a pair of 2017 Derby glasses with a bottle of Makers Mark.

We would like to thank all those who supported and made the Derby Day a fun celebration; Dave and Susan Straub, Polly Lindeman, and the Rocky Fork Hunt social committee.
