With the 2020 live harness racing season well underway, including the return of racing spectators on July 4, Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and the Hambletonian Society continue to plan for the 2020 Breeders Crown set to be held on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.

The Breeders Crown is a $6 million championship series designed to decide year-end honours and draws the year’s best Standardbred race horses from across North America to compete against one another. The event brings together the greatest harness racing equine athletes in the world as they square off in different age divisions based on the horses’ sex and gait (trot or pace). The 2020 events at Harrah’s Hoosier Park will be the 37th edition of the Breeders Crown.

Harrah’s Hoosier Park is currently operating at a reduced capacity, in accordance with the State of Indiana and regulatory guidelines. Both Harrah’s Hoosier Park and the Hambletonian Society remain committed to following all safety protocols outlined by the State of Indiana and set forth in Harrah’s Hoosier Park’s health and safety plan, and are working through details to execute the 2020 Breeders Crown event accordingly.

“Our team at Harrah’s Hoosier Park hosted an incredibly successful Breeders Crown in 2017, and in many ways exceeded expectations set forth for the event,” said Rick Moore, Harrah’s Hoosier Park VP and General Manager. “We’re honoured to host the Breeders Crown once again, and are working diligently to plan a successful 2020 event, alongside the Hambletonian Society, while ensuring adherence to the state’s guidelines and our own health and safety procedures.”

More information on the 2020 Breeders Crown, including ticketing details, will be available soon. A 2020 Breeders Crown Frequently Asked Questions document is now available at HarrahsHoosierPark.com, and will be updated regularly.
