The buzz and excitement of live harness racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino continues with the announcement of two signature wagering opportunities for the 2016 harness racing season.

Beginning Wednesday, May 18, Hoosier Park will add a new $20,000 Guaranteed Trifecta to the wagering menu and will be offered in the opening leg of the pick-5 wager every Wednesday night.

In addition, Hoosier Park will also move the $10,000 Guaranteed Pick-4 pool, currently offered on Thursday nights, to Wednesday nights in races 3-6. In partnership with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering program and the Indiana Standardbred Association, Hoosier Park will offer these signature wagers on Wednesdays throughout the live racing season.

“Wednesday nights have proven to be strong nights in terms of wagering for Hoosier Park Racing & Casino,” Hoosier Park’s Vice President and General Manager of Racing, Rick Moore noted. “We feel the addition of these guaranteed wagers will only reinforce the type of mid-week wagering activity we have seen on Hoosier Park throughout the simulcast world.”

The $20,000 Guaranteed Trifecta, which offers a 50-cent minimum wager, will begin in the first race of the pick-5 sequence each Wednesday night. On a 14-race card, the guaranteed trifecta will be offered in the tenth race of the program with an approximate post time of 8:45 p.m. No superfecta wagering will be available on the race featuring the $20,000 Guaranteed Trifecta.

The Pick-4, which offers a 50-cent minimum wager, begins in the third race and will continue through the sixth race. Approximate post time for the first leg of the wager, the third race, is 6:25 p.m. Free past performances for the Pick-4 races will be available on Hoosier Park’s website. Expert selections and handicapping tools are also available on Hoosier Park’s website. The Pick-4 wager on Wednesday nights will offer a carryover if no one correctly selects four of four winners.

The USTA Strategic Wagering program, which began five years ago, is a cooperative program among the USTA and its member tracks that is designed to provide value to horseplayers by guaranteeing the size of designated betting pools.
