Really Good Races: All our races have close finishes with the winner being in doubt "right down to the wire". All have been run at top racecourses throughout the UK and around the world with many of racing's top jockeys and considerable prize money at stake. Make no mistakes, all runners, Horses and Dogs, are racing for real, no contrived finishes, no holding them back. Your audience really will have something to shout about, as they watch their selections battle it out, on the flat over fences or hurdles or round the Dog track.
Great Commentary: Each Race has a short preview of each runners form. This section will help to "heighten the tension" as the audience settles down ready for the off.
Follow the Leaders: Some of our races have a "Follow the Leader" sequence, where the order of the first four horses is flashed on the screen during the race. This means your audience will be able to keep a check on the progress of the race, should the cheers drown out the soundtrack.
Fun to Run: Our flexible race times format allows you to include other activities, such as a Meal, Game Show, Entertainment, Bingo, Prize Draw, Raffle or other race related items such as an Auction Race.
At the beginning of Race Time we will show the "Introductory Film"
Once underway the audience may purchase as many Tote (Betting) Tickets of their choice from the Tote table. There are 8 runners in each race and the number of each is clearly marked on the saddlecloth.
Depending on the size of the audience no more than about 15 - 20 minutes should be allowed from the end of one race to the beginning of the next one. Each race lasts about 3-4 minutes, so that 6 races should take about 1 - 1 ½ hours and 8 races 2 hours.
Ready for The Off: When the Tote is closed, things should move pretty quickly. A member of the audience selects a race from the box of sealed cases, the Ticket-sellers count how many tickets have been sold; the Payout official will calculate the payout on each runner.
Run The Race: The race is loaded onto the projector. Remember, nobody will know what race will be shown until it is up on the screen.
At the Post: Once the race is run and everyone knows the winning number, the Presenter will announce the Payout on each winning ticket. Those with winning tickets should go to the Payout desk and collect their winnings.
The Tote is then open for the next race
