Thank You for the Overwhelming Response - Our Horse Races are Now Full!

Held in January at the St. Patrick Parish Center and sponsored by Knights of Columbus, the Horse Races feature hand-painted wooden horses that move with a throw of the dice! 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 of $20 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.

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.

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY! Horses with your business name or an individual name may be purchased for $75. This is a fun way to support this event as you get to name your horse (be creative!). Your name and your horse's name will be listed on race flyers that all race fans receive, as well as signage in the parish center. Contact Wayne for more information.

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!
