PINE BLUFFS, Wyo. — Kentucky may have had horses Saturday, but Pine Bluffs had corgis.

As part of a joint fundraiser between the Cheyenne Animal Shelter and Pine Bluffs Distilling, southeastern Wyoming was treated to its own version of a heralded animal race this weekend with the annual Pine Bluffs Distilling Corgi Derby.

While the humans drank from the distillery, ate from food trucks on the premises and cheered on the contestants, the furry friends in attendance put on a show for a good cause. Below is a Cap City News photo gallery of the event.
