A different type of race night. Wooden horses are moved by rolling string on to pieces of dowel over a 10m race track. Buy a horse, be a jockey or just be a betting racegoer!

  • Entry fee of £15 entitles you to a race card and a 2-course meal.

  • You have the chance to own a horse at £12 each – winning horse owners will win a bottle of champagne for each race won.

  • You can also be a jockey, rolling the string onto the handles faster than the opposition. Winning jockeys will win a bottle of Cava for each race won.

  • You will have the opportunity to bet on each race, at a minimum of £1 per bet.

  • The horses in the final (8th) race will be for sale on the night by auction. The winning owner(s) will win 40% of the race takings.

All profits will be going to charity. 

This year we are supporting the Chipping Norton Shuttle Bus which provides a service for people to travel from the town centre to the Surgery and back.

We are also supporting Kenyan Kids – a small charity providing accommodation and schooling for 10-15 girls in Kisumu in Kenya who are from broken homes or whose mothers are sex workers and who would otherwise be child brides or sex workers at the age of 12.
