What to do between races
Run a sweepstake with your friends; you can split the prizemoney for first, second, third and last, or the winner can take it all. Alternatively, you could hold your very own horse auction, where each horse in the race is auctioned off. The favourite will go for a higher price than the longshot. Use the auction money as a pool, where the winner takes all.
Planning a stress-free Spring Carnival
Planning a raceday celebration can be stressful, but as long as you follow these steps your day should remain as stress-free as possible.
