How Our Race Night Works
We will be showing eight films of actual horse races throughout the evening, each with eight numbered horses.
Place a bet at the tote table on whichever horse you think will win the race. You can bet on as many horses as you like, as many times as you like. You will be given a ticket for each bet. Hold on to this, you’ll need it to claim your winnings.
When all bets have been placed, a member of the audience will choose at random the DVD, and the race will be shown and the winner displayed.
If your horse is the winner, collect your winnings from the tote table.

The Race Card
Before the Night – The Race Card Planning and preparation are the simple keys to raising extra money. Follow the golden rules and you should already have more than enough money to cover our fee before the date. Then just let our Presenter run the night to generate excitement and maximize income.
For a fund raising event the Race Card is the prime source of income. Used properly it can cover the cost of your event, and more. Our Race Night Cards come as part of the deal. Customised to your needs.
When booking your race night we will send you a BLANK race card to be completed in advance,
Firstly, approach local firms or shops to SPONSOR one of your eight races. The name of the company will appear at the top of the race on the Race Card. eg. “ABC Taxi Cup” The sponsors should be willing to donate £15 to £20. Its good publicity for the company.
Secondly, Each horse can be sold to have an owner at say £3 per horse. The name of the horse and the owner appears on the race card. There would be one winning owner to each race. A prize can be purchased from the proceeds of the sponsorship for each of the eight races. The owners can be someone who attends the function or a friend or supporter of the charity or club.
Our race night services offer all of the following:
A Race Card for everyone attending: 8 races, 8 runners to choose from.
We send in advance: A4 Posters / Race Double Card / Tri cast cards
Big Screen and Projector (Digital Picture Quality)
Professional Presenter with over 10 years experience in hosting race nights

How much could you make from Tote Ticket sales?
To give you an idea on the earning capability of an event, let’s look at a typical event with 70 race night guests:
Sell race night admission tickets. 70 X £3.00 =£210
Race night sponsors for each race. 8 X £20 = £160.00
Owner: Sell the race night horses Races 8 X Horses 8 = 64 X £3 = £192.00
Race night betting on each race 70 x 8 x 0.5 = £280.00*
*(1 ticket per person at £1 for 8 races, Divided by 50%prize money /50% Charity Fund, In reality many guests buy more than one ticket per race)
Total Race Night Income from £0 clients = £842.00
These numbers up and down depending upon your number of guests and the amount of race night sponsorship you can get. But this just shows that you can make money with very few clients. You can decide how much you charge your guests.
A Bonus is the Auction Race: Bids are raised to become the Owner for each horse in the final race. The owner of the winning horse receives 50% of the total money raised from the auction. Your charity funds increase with the rest. So Let’s Go to the Races
The tickets are sold!
A race is chosen at random – the lights go dim and they’re off. Excitement mounts as the audience cheers on their horses. With the Race over, lights up, and the winners are paid out at the cash desk. After about ten minutes for the betting to take place on the next race, its lights down, and we’re off again.
