Anderson, IN — With a carryover in excess of $6,500, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino has announced a $20,000 Guaranteed Hoosier High-5 pool for Thursday, (Oct. 11). In partnership with the Unites States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering program and the Indiana Standardbred Association, Hoosier Park will offer this signature wager for the action packed 13-race card on Thursday that is set to begin at 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday’s 14-race card was primarily ruled by longshots finding the winner’s circle over a sloppy rated track after heavy rains earlier in the day. In the last race of the evening, driver Andy Shetler guided Hypnotic Racer to a $17.80 upset.
The Hoosier High-5, also known as the pentafecta, is featured in the last race of every program at Hoosier Park and features a reduced takeout of 12 percent. The Hoosier High-5 is responsible for the season’s third biggest payout to date this season with a $12,775.94 winning ticket paid out in August.
The $20,000 Guaranteed Hoosier High-5 pool will be offered in addition to the regularly scheduled $10,000 Guaranteed Pick-4 in races 3-6. The $10,000 Guaranteed Pick-4 offers a 50-cent minimum wager. Approximate post time for the first leg of the wager, the third race, is 7:06 p.m. (EST.).
Free past performances for the sequences will be available on the USTA website. Expert selections and handicapping tools are also available on the handicapping section of Hoosier Park’s website.
Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through Nov. 10. For more information on the upcoming entertainment and live racing schedule at Hoosier Park, please visit www.hoosierpark.com.
