If any of you have not seen this spectacular form of entertainment, let me explain. It is run exactly as the Race nights most of you will have seen, except we run real racing maggots, all highly trained by myself (the chief trainer at Decay Farm) & Chris Wright the other one.
They are ridden out each morning by Dawn Irvine our local maggot jockey. (who until recently had been putting up 10 lbs overweight)
Each ticket bought from the tote is 20p, and they represent a maggot from the trap chosen. Monies taken from each race are returned as prize money after a small percentage is taken out for prizes and tonight's chosen local charity. Details of proceeds will be announced at the end of the evening.
Many thanks to all who participated and sponsored.
A very special thanks go to all Race sponsors
