Fly Jesse Fly Lowers Hoosier Park Track Record

FLY JESSE FLY - NEW TRACK RECORDFor the first time this season, a track record was re-established at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino during the evening’s 13-race card on Tuesday, July 19. Fly Jesse Fly kicked the evening’s program off with a bang as he lowered the track record for three-year-old trotting geldings to 1:53.2 in the first race of the program. The 1:53.2 mark was a new lifetime best for Fly Jesse Fly and re-established the track record for three-year-old trotting geldings, a mark that was previously co-held by Rose Run Parker and Homicide Hunter.

Fly Jesse Fly used his customary front-running tactics and left aggressively from post seven to grab command before the opening quarter in :27.1. The Ron Otto trainee dictated fractions of :56.1 and 1:25.2 while the rest of the field struggled to stay within striking distance.

As the field turned for home, Fly Jesse Fly’s lead was ever-increasing. Late Bid Tom and Jason Dillander were next in line second but the quick pace was beginning to take its toll. Dreamstyle Herbie and Ross Leonard were next in line third but Topville Avatar and Dale Hiteman were gaining ground in fourth. Tetrick simply asked his mount for more and Fly Jesse Fly used a :28 final quarter to coast home a winner by three lengths. Topville Avatar rallied for second while Dreamstyle Herbie rounded out the trifecta.

It was the second consecutive Hoosier Park victory for the son of Jailhouse Jesse-Flying Rae and fifth seasonal victory from nine outings. He was also victorious in the last round of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings; handing Bridge To Jesse’s his first loss of the season.

Owned by Robert Sidley and James Ronald Otto, Fly Jesse Fly has bankrolled $92,462 throughout his three-year-old campaign. Fly Jesse Fly will look to make his next start in the third round of Indiana Sires Stakes eliminations for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings slated for July 26 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino.

It was a training double for Ron Otto as he also scored with veteran pacer JJ’s Gazette in “The Old Codger” pace later in the program. The 14-year-old gelding stopped the timer in 1:53.3 to notch his 62nd career victory from 330 lifetime starts.

Live racing returns to Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Wednesday, July 20 with a 14-race card. With a daily post time of 5:45 p.m., live racing will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 12.

Hoosier Park Offers Drivers the Chance to Dream Big

2016-AllStarDriverLogoContinuing upon the successes of the second edition in 2015, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino is proud to announce the third annual All-Star Drivers Series for the 2016 harness racing season. The 2016 All-Star Drivers Series will pit the top-ten drivers at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino against one another in a five-race challenge not once, but twice, throughout the season with the champion driver winning a dream prize of their choice, a $10,000 cash prize, an exotic vacation, or their favorite “always wanted to have” toy.

“When we embarked upon the Drivers Challenge two years ago we knew we were going down a road that had yet to be traveled,” Hoosier Park’s Vice President and General Manager of Racing, Rick Moore said.  “Would the format that we chose work or would we need to rethink the way drivers drafted their horses?”

“Well, the answer to that question was that the format was a resounding success as witnessed by the wild and unpredictable outcome of the last two years of competition.  We appreciate all of our drivers at Hoosier Park and are excited that the 2016 All-Star Drivers Challenge will not only highlight their talents but also give them a chance to win a dream prize.”

In the first of the two challenges, the top ten drivers will compete in a five-race competition on Saturday, July 23 for their share of $5,000. The winning driver will take home a check for $3,000 for top honors while the second place driver will earn $1,500 and the third place driver earning $500. The rankings will be based on number of wins at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino as of Saturday, July 16, 2016. The drivers will pick their horses via a draft system to be held in the following order:

1st race: Number 1 ranked driver picks first, number 2 picks second, etc.

2nd race: Number 10 ranked driver picks first, number 9 picks second, etc.

3rd race: Same as first race

4th race: Same as second race

5th race: same as first

 

The top eight finishers from Round 1 will return for Round 2 on Saturday, October 22 with the final two positions being determined by the official Hoosier Park standings at the conclusion of racing on Saturday, October 15.

While the second go-round will be conducted in the same manner as the first, the winner of the final challenge will not only be crowned the champion of the 2016 All-Star Drivers series but also have their choice of a dream prize.

Jason Dillander took home top honors in last year’s edition of the All-Star Drivers series. Dillander won the final round of the challenge by a narrow margin and was awarded a Hawaiian vacation for four, a prize valued at $15,000

“I’m definitely excited,” Dillander said. “I thought it would be hard to top a vacation but giving the drivers a chance to choose their prize is really cool. We have a lot of fun with this every year and kudos to everyone at Hoosier Park for bringing it back again this year. Of course, I hope I win it.”

Qualifying for the 2016 All-Star Drivers Series began on Friday, April 1 and continued through Saturday, July 16 for Round 1. Each of the drafts will take place at a community luncheon to be held at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. For more information on the 2016 All-Star Drivers Series, please visit Hoosier Park’s website.

Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule throughout the remainder of the meet. With a daily post time of 5:45 p.m., live racing will be conducted through November 12, 2016.

First Turn Stable members visit the Hoosier Park winner’s circle with Boogie Nights

ANDERSON, Ind.—July 2, 2016—On an evening stacked with stakes races, it was a $12,500 claiming event that stole the show at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, July 2 as Boogie Nights made his racing debut for First Turn Stable, Hoosier Park’s first fractional ownership opportunity, a winning one.

Tetrick Takes the Lead in All-Time Leading Driver Standings

Shakeitformegear was one of four winners on the card for driver Trace Tetrick at Hoosier Park.

Shakeitformegear was one of four winners on the card for driver Trace Tetrick at Hoosier Park.

Hoosier Park Racing & Casino’s reigning leading driver, Trace Tetrick scored a grand slam on Friday, April 8 and with it, surpassed Ricky Macomber Jr. in the all-time leading driver standings at Hoosier Park. Both Tetrick and Macomber Jr. are two of the most well-known drivers at Hoosier Park and have been recognized for their accomplishments on and off the track.

Heading into Friday’s 14-race card, Tetrick needed just one victory to tie Macomber Jr.’s record of 1,480 wins and two to surpass him in the standings.

The victory with Croquet Rose in the evening’s eighth race notched win number 1,480 in Tetrick’s career at Hoosier Park and tied him with Ricky Macomber Jr. for the top spot at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. After he guided Double A Cash Hall to victory in the $15,000 Open II Trot just two races later, Tetrick moved into the lead on the all-time leading driver standings with 1,481 trips to the Hoosier Park winner’s circle.

Tetrick then went on to secure his position atop the list and won with Shakeitformegear in the very next race and again in the evening’s 13th race with My Tweed Heart leaving him with 1,483 wins and counting. Macomber Jr., who has held the title since 2014, has 1,480 victories at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and counting.

Tetrick has stamped himself in the Hoosier Park history books as he also holds the records for most wins in a single season, a record that he established last year with 325 victories. Tetrick lead the leading driver standings from start to finish in 2015 to secure his 4th leading driver title at Hoosier Park.

The Southern Illinois native started driving in 2003 and has since surpassed the $33 million mark in purse earnings in the bike. He recorded his best season to date in 2015 as he notched 423 victories and his second consecutive season with over $4.8 million in purse earnings. Tetrick also celebrated his 3,000 career driving win at Hoosier Park last season.

With multiple stakes wins to his credit, Tetrick’s career reached new heights when he won the $531,250 Breeders Crown final for three-year-old male pacers at Woodbine Racetrack with Freaky Feet Pete. The 29-year-old reignsman was also voted the pari-mutuel driver of the year in the state of Indiana in both 2014 and 2015.

Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino continues on Saturday, April 9 at 5:45 p.m. with a 14-race card. The live racing schedule will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and continue through November 12.

Dillander ‘Leis’ Claim to Champion Driver Series Finale at Hoosier Park

Jason Dillander wins the 2015 Champion Driver Series at Hoosier Park

Jason Dillander wins the 2015 Champion Driver Series at Hoosier Park

The second and final round of Hoosier Park Racing & Casino’s 2015 Champion Driver Series highlighted the 14-race card on Saturday, October 17 and it was Jason Dillander who raced away with top honors, winning a Hawaiian excursion for four, a prize valued at $15,000. Not only was it a race to the islands but also a race to the finish as Dillander narrowly won the final round of the challenge by one point over Sam Widger.

In its’ second year, the 2015 Champion Driver Series placed the top-ten drivers at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino against one another in a five-race challenge not once, but twice, throughout the season. Dillander, a 39-year-old Kentucky native, accumulated a total of 32 points and finished fourth in round 1 of the challenge held on July 25.

With the points from round 1 carrying over to round 2, Dillander earned a total of 69 points in round two to secure the win over Sam Widger who finished second with 68 points. LeWayne Miller, the 2014 Champion Driver Series winner, finished third in the final round with a total of 67 points.

Although Dillander did not find the winner’s circle in any of the five races in the challenge, he earned two second place finishes, one fourth and two fifth place finishes to secure the victory. With a second, a fifth and a fourth place finish in the first three races of the challenge, Dillander had earned 54 points and was fourth in the standings heading into the fourth leg.

After a second place finish behind Meersburg in the fourth race of the challenge, Dillander accumulated nine more points and moved into third place in the standings with 63 going into the final race. Widger led all challengers with 67 points and Miller was a close second with 64. When the final race of the challenge hit the track, it appeared to be anyone’s game.

Dillander secured his trip to Hawaii with a fifth place finish in the final race, earning six more points, behind Greystone Moe for trainer Joe Cirasuola. Greystone Moe and Dillander rallied late in the lane but couldn’t catch winners Ra Ra Steven and John DeLong. Dillander’s six points were just enough to push him past Widger and into the lead by one point for the win.

“I had no idea I won,” Dillander noted in the winner’s circle. “It was really close going into the last race and it was a competitive group of horses so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.”

“I felt good about my horses coming into tonight but all of these races were really competitive so I knew it would be tough,” he continued. “We are always competitive but this was a little different, we had a lot of fun with it.”

Dillander called the Chicago racing circuit home for a number of years before venturing to Hoosier Park in 2008 where he has been a mainstay atop the leading driver standings nearly every year since. Now in his 18th season as a driver, Dillander is back in the bike in 2015 after a racing injury sidelined him for much of the 2014 season. Dillander celebrated his 2000th career win at Hoosier Park in 2013 and is approaching $20 million in career purse earnings.

Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will resume on Tuesday, October 20 with a 12-race card. With a daily post time of 5:45 p.m., live racing will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 14.

Centaur Gaming Joins Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity

The Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity announced today that Centaur Gaming – which owns and operates Indiana-based Hoosier Park Racing & Casino, Indiana Grand Racing & Casino and several off-track betting facilities – has joined as a member.  Following the addition of the Consigners and Commercial Breeders Association (CBA) earlier this week and three New York- and New Jersey-based tracks just last week, the move indicates continued momentum for national oversight of uniform medication standards in American horse racing.

“Centaur Gaming is absolutely dedicated to bringing the highest quality and best experience possible to racing enthusiasts and bettors in Indiana and throughout the Midwest,” said Centaur Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Rod Ratcliff. “The legislation endorsed by the Coalition would not only increase fairness for the men and women who wager their hard-earned dollars on racing, but would preserve the future of a sport around which our industry is built.  Centaur Gaming and the racetracks, casinos and OTB facilities we represent are proud to join the Coalition in its efforts toward the uniform regulation of medication testing and enforcement in horse racing.”

Hoosier Park Racing & Casino has been selected by the Hambletonian Society to host the prestigious Breeders Crown championship Harness races in 2017. Pending approval by the Indiana Horse Racing Commission and Indiana Standardbred Association, the track would host the 12 year-end championship races, worth a combined $5 million.

Indiana Grand Racing & Casino conducts Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing at its track in Shelbyville Indiana, home of the Indiana Derby and Indiana Oaks, both annual grade II races.

The Coalition – whose membership also includes the Breeders’ Cup Ltd., the Consigners and Commercial Breeders Association, the Humane Society of the United States, the Humane Society Veterinary Medicine Association, The Jockey Club, the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association, the Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders, the Meadowlands Racetrack, Tioga Downs, Vernon Downs, and the Water Hay Oats Alliance – supports the Thoroughbred Horseracing Integrity Act of 2015.  This bill, introduced in July 2015 to the House of Representatives by Congressmen Andy Barr (R-KY) and Paul Tonko (D-NY), will direct the non-governmental, non-profit U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to create an independent, racing-specific, non-governmental and non-profit organization to work collaboratively with state racing commissions and their respective staff members throughout the country.

Additional information, including stories from supporters and ways to contact Congressional members to express support for this legislation, is available at www.horseracingintegrity.com

Topville Cadillac Establishes New Track Record at Hoosier Park

Topville Cadillac Establishes New Track Record at Hoosier Park with her 1:52.1 clocking.

Topville Cadillac Establishes New Track Record at Hoosier Park with her 1:52.1 clocking.

Topville Cadillac, with Tyler Smith at the lines, became Hoosier Park Racing & Casino’s newest track record holder when she powered home a winner in 1:52.1 in the fourth round of $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes eliminations for two-year-old pacing fillies on Friday, August 28. After equaling the 1:52.2 mark previously established by Bettor Be Steppin and Corey Callahan in her last outing, Topville Cadillac bested that time by a fifth of a second to be the sole owner of the track record for two-year-old pacing fillies.

In just the sixth start of her freshman campaign, Topville Cadillac used a near gate to wire effort to defeat nine other rivals and score her fourth win of the season. Her 1:52.1 victory also marked the sixth track record that has been re-established at Hoosier Park during the 2015 live harness racing season.

Leaving from post five in the field of nine, Topville Cadillac was unhurried from the gate and settled along the rail in fourth while the rest of the field battled for early position. Smith wouldn’t wait long as he sent the heavily favored filly on a mission to the front just past the opening quarter in :27.

Topville Cadillac dictated middle fractions of :55.3 and 1:24.2 before ever feeling a threat from the rest of the field. As the field turned for home, Lookharryimwinning and Rick Plano tipped from the pocket but Topville Cadillac looked strong on the front. Using a :27.4 last quarter, Topville Cadillac was able to put away Lookharryimwinning and hold off a late charge from Endeavors Fantasy and Sam Widger who had to settle for second place honors.

Diamondtequilashot and Peter Wrenn rounded out the trifecta. Topville Cadillac returned $5.00 to her backers at the betting windows.

Trained by Alvin Miller, the daughter of Rockin Image-Topville Cyberwave notched her fourth win from six seasonal outings. Topville Cadillac, a $95,000 yearling purchase, is a half sister to former Indiana Sires Stakes Champions Always About Katey and Radar Contact. Her $95,000 purchase price also made her the highest priced yearling in the state of Indiana in 2014. Owned by Ted Comerford, Twila Harts and Alvin Miller, Topville Cyberwave has now earned $37,550 lifetime.

The post time favorites also delivered in the other two divisions of Indiana Sires Stakes eliminations on the evening. Ed Hensley guided Can’t Touch This to a 1:53 score in the opening division for trainer Roger Welch while Seventimesavirgin turned a pocket trip into a 1:54 victory for trainer, driver John DeLong.

All three of the evening’s elimination winners successfully earned a spot in the next round of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final slated for September 4 at Hoosier Park. Live racing continues at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, August 29 with a 14-race card.
