Any venue can be transformed for a night at the races with Race Night NI. Community centres, Pubs, clubs and bars, sports halls, hotels and function rooms can play host to a fantastic nights entertainment from Race Night NI.
Your race night MC & host will organise the entire night and will act as tote/ book keeper and race announcer as well as calculating all the odds and winnings for you throughout the evening. Music of your choice will be played between the races to create add to the atmosphere and you have an option to continue the night with a DJ, karaoke or other entertainment after the races have finished.
How it works
Before your Race Night NI event you sell entrance tickets and horse ownership’s as well as sign up a local business sponsor for each race. Each horse owner gets to name their horse which is then listed in the race programme on the night. Any business sponsors will also be listed in the programme as well as their company logo displayed on the screen.
On the night before each race the betting station is then opened. Horses are picked by number and for each £1 bet placed they will receive a betting ticket for their chosen horse. 50% of the total raised from betting goes to the fundraiser, 50% is then prize money divided between the winning horse owners.
After the betting has closed a race video is then picked at random and the comical horse forms are played before the race begins. After the race the winning ticket holders proceed to collect their prize money before betting opens for the next race.
An auction race can also be included where the crowd bid on the night to own one of the horses for a large prize money pot (determined by how much is raised in the auction). This final 9th race then brings the race night to a close.
