Next Thursday the 18th October we will be having a Calcutta Evening on the Caulfield Cup at the Dandenong Club.
The evening will consist of a meal costing $30 per person and the opportunity to draw one horse per couple at a cost of $20.
After the draw the Calcutta Auction starts……
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:
- 50 per cent of the sale price goes to the person who drew that horse in the ticket draw; and the remaining 50 per cent goes into the ever-growing prize pool (so if you bid on ‘your’ horse it only costs half the auction amount)
- The highest bidder in the auction stage becomes the new owner of that horse. Successful bidders must pay for their horses on the night – Cash and EFTPOS/Credit Card facilities will be available.
After the running of the race the prize pool is apportioned between the first 3 horses.
