Now in its second year, The Calcutta offers a front row seat at the Grand Prix while supporting SVHC's valuable work in the community.

The Calcutta starts with cocktails while watching the events and choosing favorites. After an al fresco lunch, attendees will place bets for their favorite horse to win, place, or show in the main event, the Grand Prix. Riders attempt to negotiate approximately 18 obstacles that are more than 5 feet in height. (In the case of a jump off, there will be a win bet only for the Grand Prix.) The Calcutta will be emceed by event committee co-chairs Tom Ziegler and Chris Brooks.


Tickets are $125 per person for the event. It includes admission, parking, lunch, drinks, and betting privileges as a table member. Each person is expected to bid an additional $100 minimum with their table. Fifty percent of winnings will go to SVHC.
