On Friday 26th April at midday, grab your work mates, gal pals, partners, husbands, wives, bosses, and anyone else and get down to the Scores Sports Bar at Wests Diggers. Just $5 a ticket and you could be riding the winner of the Tamworth Cup all the way to the bank on Sunday. Come along for some trainer's insights into how to train winning horses, a relaxed lunch and plenty of laughs.
THE TICKET DRAW
Tickets are $5 each and are available both prior to and on the day. The Calcutta commences with one ticket being drawn for each runner in the 2019 Mercure Tamworth Cup. If your ticket is drawn, you ‘own’ that horse ahead of the auction stage! All proceeds from the ticket draw go into the prize pool.
Each horse will be auctioned to the attendees at the Calcutta, who have the opportunity to bid for that horse. You can bid on your own, or you might choose to pool resources with others at your table. After the hammer falls on each runner:
a percentage of the sale price goes to the person who drew that horse in the ticket draw; and the remaining percentage goes into the ever-growing prize pool. The highest bidder in the auction stage becomes the new owner of that horse. Successful bidders must pay for their horses on the day – Cash and EFTPOS/Credit Card facilities will be available.
