A spokesperson said, “The Argus Group will return as the lead sponsor for the fourth consecutive year providing financial and volunteer support.

“Embracing this year’s Heritage Day Theme of Togetherness, the Derby Committee is introducing exciting collaborative upgrades to the race production, with emphasis on enhancing the viewing experience of spectators at home and around the world through live streaming and social media engagement. This year, the Derby celebrates the life and legacy of the great Mike Sharpe who demonstrated his unwavering support of the Derby over the last several decades. A minute of silence will be held in his honor at the start of the race.”

We are pleased to support this important Bermuda tradition.”
