This Saturday, Northlands Park is hosting the 1st Annual Powder Puff Derby. It's a horse race with a twist for a worthy cause. 

Seven women who have been training with a "mentor jockey" are going head to head during the Live Thoroughbred Racing (1pm start time) . These fabulous women are a mix of exercise riders and female trainers that frequent Northlands, but haven't participated in something like this before!

Funds raised through pledges from the racing community are all donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Men are showing their support too! Some of the jockeys in Saturday's races are donating their earnings towards the worthy cause.

Put on your pink fascinators and head down to the races!
