Your formula is looking for a space in the text field. Notice that in the fields were you get a result, there is a space before the final dash and two digits.

It also looks like the final ending is not always a two digit number–sometimes it is three digits, and sometimes it is two digits and a letter. Sometimes this final number is preceded by a space and a dash, sometimes only by a dash, and sometimes the final number is smushed against the preceding word word. In order to get a robust formula field, you need to better define what you want removed from the string. Once you determine that, I recommend using a REGEX function to get the text you want. There are several REGEX patterns that will get the result you want.
