ANDERSON, IN ---After recording the largest Thursday night handle in the history of the track on Thursday, April 8, Harrah's Hoosier Park Racing & Casino eclipsed that newly minted record and set a new Thursday night handle record just one week later on Thursday, April 15. Bolstered by guaranteed wagers and competitive racing, the evening's 14-race card produced a total of $1,380,396 wagered to establish a new all-time record handle for Thursday night racing.

Several longshot winners in the early pick-5 sequence sparked an instant carry over of $7,691.14 and was added to the late pick-5 sequence on the card with a $25,000 guarantee. This was in addition to the regularly scheduled $10,000 Guaranteed Pick-4 which returned $4,087.

The early pick-5 sequence is one of many new additions to the wagering menu for the 2021 live racing season which has been well received by the wagering public. In addition, Harrah's Hoosier Park will continue to offer a free live racing program available for download on the Harrah's Hoosier Park website every live racing night. Expert selections and handicapping tools are also available for free on Harrah's Hoosier Park's website

Live racing will return to Harrah's Hoosier Park on Friday, April 16 with an action packed 14-race card. Friday's card will feature a $16,000 Open II Pace and three divisions of the Jerry Landess Memorial Pacing Series. Friday's card will also feature a $10,000 Guaranteed Hoosier High-5 pool in the last race of the program.

With a daily post time of 6:30 p.m., Harrah's Hoosier Park's 2021 season will feature 160 live racing days. Racing will be held on a Wednesday through Saturday schedule through mid-May before adding Sunday evenings. The full schedule continues through September before dropping back down to a Wednesday through Saturday schedule through December 4. For the first time ever, Harrah's Hoosier Park will also offer live racing on both the night before Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving night.
