The stage is set for Harrah’s Hoosier Park as the 28th season of live racing is set to get underway with a 14-race card on Friday (March 26). A total of 168 horses have been dropped into the entry box for the Opening Night card, highlighted by eliminations for the Harrah’s Hoosier Park Claiming Challenge, with a post time of 6:30 p.m.

With racing set to commence once again on the Anderson, Ind., oval, Harrah’s Hoosier Park will also debut its new wagering menu to the betting public. The new wagering menu includes:

• An early Pick-5 in races 1-5, as well as a late Pick-5 in races 10-14
• Both an early Pick-4 in races 3-6 as well as a new late Pick-4 in races 11-14
• Return of the Jackpot Pick-6 in races 8-13
• Pick-3 wagers throughout the card, beginning in races two, six, nine and 12
• A Hoosier High-5 in the final race of the night with an industry low takeout of 12 per cent

The Opening Night card’s Hoosier High-5 in the finale will feature a guaranteed pool of $15,000. The wager requires handicappers to select the first five finishers of the evening’s final race. If there are no winners in the wager, the pool will carry over into the final race of the next card’s Hoosier High-5. Over the course of the racing season, the Hoosier High-5 pool will be guaranteed at $10,000 on Wednesday-Friday cards, as well as when Sundays are picked up starting May 23.

Also returning for the 2021 season at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, the track will guarantee the early Pick-4 pool at $10,000 every Thursday over the course of the season in races 3-6.
