Night Of The Races

Race Nights are fantastic ways to raise money for a charity, your club or organisation or any other good cause. We supply up to date UK races on state of the art projection equipment, with a large screen and full pa system. We provide all the paperwork including race cards and betting tickets. We cover all of Northern Ireland including Belfast, Derry / Londonderry, Newry and the Boarder counties.


Booking Info

  • Our Race night team will setup all the equipment including the big screen and sound system. You will need 4 volunteers to be the bookies for the night. We supply all the tickets, and betting slips etc..


The tote is opened and tickets sold by 4 of your volunteer bookmakers.  There is no limit on the amount of tickets that may be purchased.

A video is then selected at random and the race is run. The money collected is split between the fund raiser and the winners. E.G.

Race One: 

  • Example Horse 1 sells 10 tickets = £10.00
  • Horse 2 sells 8 tickets = £8.00
  • Horse 3 sells 16 tickets = £16.00
  • Horse 4 sells 4 tickets = £4.00
  • Horse 5 sells 15 tickets = £15.00
  • Horse 6 sells 16 tickets = £16.00
  • Horse 7 sells 20 tickets = £20.00
  • Horse 8 sells 15 tickets = £15.00
  • A Total of £104.00


In the above example, the £104.00 is split 50/50. The fund-raiser would take £52.00 and the winning ticket holders would share £52.00. If horse 4 won this would be £52.00 split between 4 punters which equals £13.00 each.

Sponsors You can raise additional funds prior to your race night by selling the horses (and jockeys) and finding a sponsor for each race. Simply, approach your butcher, milkman or builder and offer them the opportunity to become a race sponsor, in return they get advertising in your race card and the compare will give all your sponsors maximum exposure over the microphone too.


If each sponsor pays £20.00. This will raise £160.00 and help cover your overheads. Pre Selling Then sell all the 64 horses for £2.00 each.


This raises another £128.00. You then obtain eight prizes, to give to each winning owner as the owners prize.

You do the same with the jockeys. By pre-selling you will be able to go into profit before the race night is held.
