Kentucky Derby party a hit with members

The winner of the Kentucky Derby on May 7, 2022, was a long shot but Rich Strike ran for the roses and won. The odds and payoff? 80-1.

Members of the Milwaukee region were winners too as they gathered for a Kentucky Derby party. The event was organized by the region’s Social committee which does an awesome job of creating events that bring us together.

Many of the 20-plus attendees wore their finest Derby attire — colorful hats for the ladies and stunning sport coats for the men.

The finest filly award was won by Heather Heiking, wife of Nate Heiking. The most dapper stud award was won by Patrick Murphy wearing a sport coat and tie suitable for one day of the year.

Jennifer Reidy, co-member of Don Reidy, put her money on Rich Strike. Bonnie Regnery won the purse for "place" and Todd Ponath won for "show."

Roger Franzel was crowned Trivia Wizard answering the most questions about the Derby.
