This Saturday, October 8th was our first ever all Quarter Horse racing day, and Hoosier Buddy took full advantage of the fun! Not only did he ride the mechanical bull, Buddy went to the jockey meet and greet, he clowned around with our rodeo clown and did some walking with our cowboy stilt walker. Our Wild West theme also had family fun day activities including a bouncy house, face painting and interactive games.
All afternoon you could see Hoosier Buddy making his rounds to all of our events. He really got excited when the mule race was going on because his girlfriend was in the race! Buddy’s girlfriend, Sarah got last place in the non-wagering mule race that took place after race 2.
All of our activities were coupled with an excellent racing card. There were three trials of the Miss Roxie Little Futurity, three trials of the Governor’s Stakes, race 10 was the Sterlie Bertram Final for $100,000 and the last race on the card was the Hoosier Park Classic Final also for $100,000!
