About The Santa Anita Park Bulldog Derby
On January 19th, 2019, at the Santa Anita Park race track, in Arcadia, CA, bulldog owners and their bullies were invited to dress in their absolute "Kentucky Derby" best as they gathered together as one community to celebrate the English and French Bulldog breeds. This event/meet-up ia the ultimate Bulldog Meet-Up!. There was food trucks, entertainment by KROQ/KROQ To The Rescue, Best Dressed contests & giveaways, photo ops, special guest appearances by Cherie the Surf Dog, Smedley Butler the Marine Bulldog, & Kristen Renton from Sons of Anarchy. Lastly, there was the main event: The Bulldog Derby, where English/British and French bulldogs competed for the title of "The fastest bulldog in the world!".
The winners from this year's event was Snoopy "The Flying Ace" (English Bulldog) and Brady (French Bulldog)
With the help from Santa Anita Park, Souza Insurance Agency, The Bulldog Club of Southern California, Christine Duran aka "The Bulldog Godmother" from The Bulldog Republic, our sponsors & vendors, this special occasion is being held to help benefit the SoCal Bulldog Rescue, by raising money as well as help their bulldogs find love and furever homes.
At this event alone, we were able to raise about $14,400 for the SoCal Bulldog Derby!! We had about 4,500 people in attendance, and over 500 English and French bulldogs!
We would like to thank everyone for their generosity, their support, and for coming to our event to help The SoCal Bulldog Rescue. We are looking forward to an even more fun, bigger, & better event for the 2020 Santa Anita Park 2nd Annual Bulldog Derby!
