Our Men's Captain Mike Smith and Ladies' Captain Laura Key are hosting a Charity Race Night on Saturday 22nd July in aid for raising funds for local charity Freddie's Friends.
On the evening you will be able to bet on races with cold hard cash, and everyone has a chance of winning! It’s a fun packed lottery where everybody nobody has a competitive advantage. It’s fun for the complete racing beginner and expert alike and every race contains eight runners that you can choose from.
How does it work?
Before each race punters have a chance to bet. They can buy as many betting tickets as they want, the more tickets you buy per horse, the greater the share you'll receive if that horse wins!
Don't like to take risks? If you're a safe better you can bet on more than one horse to increase your chances of winning, but you're net profit won't be as much as you'll lose the bets on the horse(s) that don't win.
It is a non-profit event meaning that the ticket sales are there to cover the cost of the food and the race night equipment (any surplus goes to the charity), and a portion of the money from each race goes to the charity, while the rest is handed out to the winners!
