DENVER - What’s better than horses big enough to ride? Horses small as dogs, of course. So pet-able…
And there’ll be plenty of those mini horses at the Inaugural Denver Mini Derby on May 6 at The Hanger in Stanley Marketplace.
It’s the only Kentucky Derby event that features a live mini horse race. Following the real derby, the mini horses will take to the track in a race for charity.
Guests can enjoy this mini derby and charitable betting, photo ops with the horses, a live viewing of the Kentucky Derby on a big screen, a DJ and dance floor, mint juleps and themed cocktails with barbeque food, lawn games and various contests.
- Corgi racing
- Best hat
- Best suit
- Cutest couple
Plus, it’s a chance to rock your big derby hats and a pastel suit bright enough to outshine the Great Gatsby.
The derby starts at 1 p.m. and is open only to those 21 and older.
General admission is $79 and includes the viewing party, mini horse race, the contests and two-drink tickets. Additional food and drink can be purchased day of.
VIP tickets are $149 and have all that, plus access to the VIP-only dessert section, open bar and unlimited Rolling Smoke BBQ.
Tickets can be bought at www.denverminiderby.com.
