BUSINESSMEN'S DERBY WELL BE FEATURE RACE AT RAYMOND of the feature attractions at Raymond's 43rd annual Stampede and race meet to be held on July 1 and 2, will be the 1'v-mile open race. This evens, is called the Business- men's Derby and ovtr sixty busi- nesses or employees of businesses have contributed' to make this the feature race. Tmal money will ex- ceed S250 and some of the fastest thoroughbreds in Southern Alberta will be here to try for this purse. In connection with the 43rd an- nual Stampede, It is interesting to note that in '1903 Rav Knight put on the first official Stampede in Alberta and it is believed the in Western Canada. This show staged in Raymond, where a few corrals were built "of poles and a racetrack was carved out of the earth around these corrals. Cow- boys were numerous and people came to Raymond from Cardston. Lethhridge and Magrath and most of them drove wagons or team and buggy. Good teams were plentiful and many races were carried on with men entering their saddle horses or their teams in a chuck- wagon race. There were "spills" and thrills galore just as today, the original tradition of a west Stampede has come an- nually until today Raymond's show is second to none. In those early days Ray Knight, who has participated, managed and judged in rodeos all over the con- tinent, was then one of the best cowboys in the show. This year. "Ray." as everyone knows him, -vill be at the Raymond show as honor- arv president of the Stampede with a 'ringside seat to enjoy watching the vounger men try their skill as the events take place. Ray is not as voung as in former years and although he is not as active in body, he will be with the cowboys in spirit. Sufficient loudspeakers will be installed and Bob Jessup will broad- cast each event as it will take place dunns the show.
