About the Event
FAQs about this event:
1. I've never heard of virtual horse racing as a fundraising event, what is this?
a. A 'live' horse race experience is an exciting way to raise money and have fun! There are
10 prerecorded horse races, with 10 horses in each race. The races are prerecorded at
horse tracks around the nation, but where, we don't know. The 10 races are shown for
the first time the night of our event. We’ll allow 12 minutes between each race to get
your bets in, with a 2-minute warning before the betting window closes and the race
begins. Follow your horse(s) from the post parade to the starting gate, down the back
stretch, through the turn, down the stretch to the finish line and on to the Winners Circle!
Enjoy the thrill and excitement of the horse track without being there!
2. How many horses can I bet on with each race? Just one?
a. As many as you'd like! Budgeting for the event? Each bet ticket costs $1, with 10 horses
per race, you could bet on every horse in one race and only spend $10. Want to spend
more? Spread it out among all 10 horses or put all your money down on 1 horse. It's up
to you! A select amount of play money is included in your ticket price with more
available at the event.
3. What’s included in my ticket price?
a. Finger foods, two (2) drink chips (good for wine, signature drinks, draft beer), racing
program, and play money. Payouts (play money) are based on the number of wagers
placed each race and posted at the event. Race winners will be entered into our Grand
Prize Raffles at the end of the evening. A cash bar will be available throughout the
evening, in addition to various 50/50 opportunities. Tickets are limited to 200 attendees.
4. How should I plan to pay for everything? Is this a cash only event?
a. Only play money will be accepted for all horse bets. Becker Farm policies dictate
purchases at the bar.
