Just seven nights into the 2021 live harness racing season, Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino recorded the largest Thursday night handle ever in the 27-year history of the track on Thursday (April 8). Bolstered by full fields and competitive racing, the 13-race card produced all-sources handle of $1,151,829.

“We’d like to send a very big thank you to everyone who watched and wagered on tonight’s card at Harrah’s Hoosier Park,” vice president and general manager of racing Rick Moore noted. “We are firm believers in momentum, and this is a great way to start the season. We’d also like to thank the horsemen for putting on an outstanding show each and every night.”

Harrah’s Hoosier Park kicked off the 2021 live racing season on Friday, March 26, and did it with a bang as bettors came out in full force to produce $703,202 in handle for the evening. All-sources handle was up 7.5 per cent over opening night in 2019 with the same number of races carded.

Along with a few new additions to the wagering menu for the 2021 live racing season, Harrah’s Hoosier Park has and will continue to offer free live racing programs for download on their website every live racing night. Expert selections and handicapping tools are also available for free on Harrah’s Hoosier Park’s website.

Live racing will return to Harrah’s Hoosier Park on Friday (April 9) with a 13-race card featuring a $20,000 Open Pace and four divisions of the Jerry Landess Memorial Pacing Series, as well as a $10,000 guaranteed Hoosier High-5 pool in the last race.
