Anderson, IN --- The buzz and excitement of live harness racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino continues with the announcement of a $10,000 guaranteed Pick-4 pool offered on Thursday nights.

In partnership with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering Program and the Indiana Standardbred Association, Hoosier Park will offer this signature wager beginning on Thursday (April 10).

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 5:55 p.m. (EDT). Free past performances for the Pick-4 races will be available on the USTA website. Expert selections and handicapping tools are also available on Hoosier Park’s website.

The Pick-4 wager on Thursday nights will offer a carryover if no one correctly selects all four winners.

“Hoosier Park would like to thank the Indiana Standardbred Association and the United States Trotting Association for again partnering on the $10,000 guaranteed Pick-4, which has become such a popular wager among horse racing fans,” Hoosier Park’s Vice President and General Manager of Racing Rick Moore noted. “Building on the successes of last year, we are proud to offer the Pick-4 wager and with the guaranteed pool, we feel that it offers remarkable value to the horseplayers.”

Two longshot winners in the Wednesday Pick-4 sequence at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino sparked a carryover in excess of $1,000 and will be added to the $10,000 guaranteed pool on April 10.

The 12-race card slated for April 10 will be highlighted by a $17,500 Preferred Trot for fillies and mares. Also on the card will be the opening round of the Jerry Landess series, a late closing event open to 3- and 4-year-old Indiana sired colts and geldings that are non-winners of $7,500 lifetime.

Live racing at Hoosier Park will follow a Tuesday-Saturday schedule, with a new daily post time of 5:15 p.m. Offering an extended stakes schedule this season, the 160-day, all harness racing meet will be conducted through Nov. 15.
