Why is it called the Striped Pig? The name of the race is a tip of the hat to the creative businessmen of the prohibition era who used to skirt alcohol laws by attracting thirsty spectators to buy a ticket to see a painted striped pig in a tent. Though the pig was what folks purchased a ticket for, everyone was really there for the free glass of rum served within the tent. This is not a far cry from our own version of the striped pig attraction. Sure, we all signed up for the race, but we are sticking around for the wine!
