Club fundraising

How Does a Horse Racing Night Work?

A horse racing night is an excellent option for sports and social clubs to use as a fundraising option for their club. Here’s a brief outline on how they work and what’s involved.

How do they work?

  • Have your guests dress up for a day at the races.
  • There will be four or six races all up and we will be showing footage of actual horse races.
  • Guests are each given $2000 per race to bet with.
  • They place a bet with the dodgy bookies on whichever horse or horses they think will win the race.
  • They will be given a ticket for each bet they make. Once all bets are placed the race is run.
  • At the end of each race the winning number is announced and if it's yours you take your winning ticket to the bookies.
  • The bookies will allocate you a Winners Cheque.
  • At the end of the night the person with the highest combined total of Winners Cheques is declared the night’s winner and awarded the trophy for Top Punter.

What’s included in a Horse Racing Night?

  • Authentic bookie boards and bags

How can I use this to fundraise?

  • Seek sponsors for each of the races on your race program, there are 6 in all.

  • Make an event of the evening with ladies dressing up for fashions in the field with a prize for the most popular.
