You need lots of help on these nights!I am assuming that you are in touch with a firm to supply the films etc. and are covered for gambling wherever you are running it.
You then need people in advance to:
print the race cards although the people who provide the films will probably contacts for that.
sponsor each race and provide a prize.
buy each horse in each race.
Then on the night you need people to:
sell the tickets for each horse, usually 1 person can sell for 2 horses.
run the tote and pay out the winnings, usually 1 person does this.
Clearly in both of the latter it is very useful if people take it in turns to do the jobs.
The big thing you need on the night is loads of people to buy the horses, remembering that strictly speaking nobody under 18 can actually buy a ticket.
