As far as I know they still have them. They did on my cruise in February.

They haven't held the bidding or races on my last 4 or 5 cruises. I'm not sure why but I'm sure it has saved me some money.

It depends on the cruise line, the ship and itinerary, and even the cruise director's preferences. Some CDs don't like to do the horse racing so even if a ship had the event previously they will not do it during their tour of duty.
