At the beginning of each race, ownership of each of the horses was auctioned - our thanks to Derek Robbins for a very entertaining auction - with the successful bidder of the winning horse getting a cash prize at the end of the race. After the auction, which got quite competitive, everyone present could make a 50p 'bet' on one or more of the runners in that race, with holders of tickets for the winning horse getting a small cash prize.

After two races we took a break for supper - a variety of sandwiches, crisps and cakes provided by the Christ Church Friends committee tempted us all - before continuing with another two races. It proved to be a very enjoyable evening and raised £118.80 for Christ Church Friends funds. Thank you to all who organised the event, and but especially to those who attended and joined in the fun.
