For the pigs, we’ve patterned the races after horse racing’s Triple Crown. Our Triple ‘Pig’ Crown series features 90 races throughout October and three “marquee” ones – The PIGtucky Derby, SQUEAKness and BOARmont Stakes. Visitors can wager on their favorite pig and will receive a numbered raffle ticket. At the end of the race, a ticket will be drawn from the winning pigs slot and that individual will win a prize from one of our sponsors.
The month-long event raises money by allowing people to place bets on who they believe will win each race. Those bets are given in the form of a donation. Each “betting” participant receives a special pig nose and if their pig wins the race, they’ll be entered into a drawing for a special prize provided by our sponsors. To date, the Maris Farms Triple ‘Pig’ Crown event has raised more than $25,000 for St. Jude & Seattle Children’s Hospital during its 13-year run.
