Horse Races

No Current Event Information Available


Held in January at the St. Patrick Parish Center and sponsored by Knights of Columbus. Featuring hand-painted wooden horses that move with a throw of the dice. Horses with your business name or an individual name may be purchased ($50 in 2017). Normally, there are 12 races. There are 6 horses with different owners and names in each race.

There is a general per person admission fee ($15 in 2017) at the door. Fee includes open bar, snacks, and attendance prizes. Snacks may include Chex mix, popcorn, veggie tray, cheese and sausage tray, meatballs, and wings. Many tables bring their own snacks as well. Each bet is $2.00. Individuals may bet on as many horses as they wish or bet on the same horse as many times as they wish. Participants do not have to purchase a horse to participate.

Odds are posted after the betting window closes. Knights pay 60% of each purse to the winning horse. We have a daily Double which involves two races with $4.00 for each bet and those bets must be placed before the first half of the daily double.

With your help and support, the Knights of Columbus are able to do many great things in our community and around the state. We thank you for your help.
