Ways to Participate

Walk-ins will cost $300 for a table; or $30 for an individual seat

2. Purchase a Horse!

For $25 you can own a horse in one of the races.
Winning horse owners receive $100 cash and their horse will be included in the Grand Championship Race for a chance to win $1,000!
All horses must be sold by Friday, April 26th.

Horses will NOT be on sale the night of the races.

How does A Night at the Races work?

You will receive a program which lists the races and all the horses.

You will place bets on any horse you choose – one race at a time – at the designated betting windows.

We will watch pre-recorded horse races on the big screen and you will WIN CASH if your horse comes in first place!

There are 11 races, with the 11th being the Grand Championship composed of all of the winning horses from the previous 10 races.

Betting windows will be open before each race and players can bet on any horse in that particular race.

All bets must be in $2 increments (CASH ONLY!) and for the win only.

Once the betting windows are closed, the cash payouts for each horse will be computed and announced.

St. Elizabeth will keep 50 percent of the pot from each race and the remaining 50 percent will be divided equally and paid out to those who bet on the winning horse.


The night will also include the following:
● 50/50 Raffle
● Pick-a-Prize Raffle
● Specialty Raffles
More Details Coming Soon!!
