Something you don't see around here often is horse races. That is about to change on October 27th, with the 'Nite at the Races' fundraiser near Brownwood.

The event is to raise money for Caring Family Network, a Child Placing Agency for foster and adoptive children in Texas. The money will go to children and families in the Brown Country area and will help give them a terrific Christmas.

There aren't real horses racing but instead there will be 12 pre-recorded Thoroughbred horse races that you can bet on with 'funny money', You can also sponsor a horse and pick what number he runs in the race. It sounds like a ton of fun plus you get food and entertainment as well. Here are the details of the event.
