At The Races

Belvedere Club Derby Kicks Off The New Year

A huge crowd of Belvederians gathered at Laurel Manor last Thursday, January 12, 2017, to kick off 2017 with a whoosh. That’s the sound of the thoroughbreds racing by, hooves-a-pounding, to the finish line.



The crowd gathers for the first race at the Belvedere Derby.

And They’re Off!
