Harrah’s Hoosier Park will be one of four locations under the Caesars Entertainment Racing program conducting “Empire of Hope” Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21. A full range of activities is planned to raise funding and awareness for racehorse aftercare programs.
Guests of the casino may donate through the popular “Give $5, Get $5” program in which each $5 donation is rewarded with either $5 in free play or a $5 race wager. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to racehorse aftercare programs, including the newly implemented Standardbred Transition Alliance.
Other activities planned for the evening include a Red Carpet Race Horse Fashion Show in the front paddock from 6 until 6:30 p.m. Both caretakers and their horses will be dressed up. Racing fans can choose their favorite and cast a vote for a $2 donation.
The evening will also include the return of harness racing’s richest horse Foiled Again. Foiled Again will be available in the front paddock from 6:30 until 8 p.m. for a meet and greet with fans with a donation. The night will be capped off by live music from Cook and Belle.
Other Caesars racetracks participating in “Empire of Hope” include Indiana Grand, Harrah’s Philadelphia and Harrah’s Louisiana Downs.
