Fifteen different people, families and local businesses sponsor a race. Other businesses bought an ad in the event program ranging from a full-page ad down to a business card-size ad.

Each race had 10 horses sold and named by people throughout our community. Horses were placed in random races in random order all for the people who came to the event to bet on.

“We also had many people and companies donate items we could give away as door prizes,” Coach Kerns noted. “Much thanks is given to the coaches on my coaching staff, seventh grade all the way up.”

“No way the event could run without all their help and some of their spouses for their help,” she continued. “Also thanks to Amy Schoen for helping out in the betting booth. Denise Brandenburg, Becky Drew, and Tiffany Shaffer kept things rolling smoothly selling beverages”
