The Races

There will be a total of 7 races on the night, each with 8 different horses (with the potential for a “Special” 8th race).

You can buy as many tickets for each race and horse as you want - these purchases occur on the night at the proposed cost of £1 (subject to change) but as mentioned, cash only.

Pre-race night purchases

As anyone who has taken part in a race night before will know it is possible to Sponsor a race, buy a horse, or even become a jockey for each race on the night. 

All of this is on a first come, first served basis and is open from the minute you receive this email until the minute the race in question starts.

If you make any form of race purchase before the event, this payment will be due by 7pm on the night of the event.

Sponsor a race - £10 

Receive a promotion from the MC before the race begins.

Buy a horse - £5

Name your horse e.g. I could buy ‘Horse 1’ in race 2 and name him ‘Lovely game of Fives’. The winning owner receives £10

Become a jockey - £3

Only possible to jockey 1 horse in each race. The winning jockey receives £5




As mentioned, all of the above is first come first served, you can’t pre-order for the 8th “Special” race but the other 7 are all up for grabs.

If you wish to make a purchase by reply to this email, or in your other RSVP to me, please use the following formats:

    SPONSOR - [Race No.] - [Name/phrase to be mentioned]

    HORSE - [Race No.] - [Horse No.] - [New name for the horse]

    JOCKEY - [Race No.] - [Horse No.]


To use the example mentioned above:

    HORSE - [2] - [1] - ‘Lovely game of Fives'


You should receive confirmation of your purchases within 48 hours. If you have any problems please let me know. I will send you all regular updates on the state of the races, horses and jockeys as we move closer to the event.

All profits from the races go directly to TWBCC to be spent on providing cricket of all ages up at St Marks.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to give us a good idea of numbers and to reserve your place! It’ll be great to see you all there!
