That is easy -- its a CASH BASH Ticket! Eash ticket is individually numbered. The night of the event, purchased tickets are drawn randomly out of a bucket after each race beginning with race #2 through race #9 inclusively (eight tickets total). The person holding that ticket number receives $100 in cash. After race #10 the final ticket is pulled and the person holding that ticket will receive $500 in cash. You do not have to be present to win any of the cash prizes.
Also, you will have the opportunity to take advantage of the an amazing hors d'oeuvres display that will curb the munchies and keep you fueled up as you expend all of your energy jumping around cheering on your favorite horse as they come around that final turn and head down the straight away to the finish line.
The best part - the horse races
Now to the best part of the night -- the horse races! If the Cash Bash and race watching is not enough to feed your need for excitement, why not 'buy' a horse?
Just download, fill out and send in (or drop off) a “Horse Ownership Registration" form. This allows you to ‘buy’ a horse. OK, so you can’t really buy a horse for $10, but you can name it…..whatever you want. That’s right, but be prepared, some of the names get…well …interesting. (Did we mention this is not an event for children?)
The fun part is hearing our race announcer reciting the names of the horses as they race around the track on the big screen, in true race fashion.
The owner of the winning horse gets the $50 purse and bragging rights.
Not an owner, then pick your favorite horse to win. Follow your horse during the parade, to the post, and into the starting gate. As the race track announcer proclaims "And They're Off," the gate opens and the horses head down the back stretch, through the turns, and down the home stretch. Numbers appearing on the bottom of the screen clearly show the order of the first four horses. Official results are posted as a full screen graphic to verify the order of finish.
Did your horse win? Do you hold a winning ticket? Take that ticket to the window and claim your prize! The horse you picked did not win! Don’t worry; there are nine more races to follow.
