Now in it’s fourth season, First Turn Stable, the fractional ownership program implemented by Harrah’s Hoosier Park in 2016, has assembled a new group for 2019. According to a story by Rick Teverbaugh in The Herald Bulletin, the new ownership group consists of 49 people as of the end of May.
Each member of First Turn Stable becomes a temporary owner during the racing season at Harrah’s Hoosier Park. Those participating in the event pay $250 with no other charges of owning part of the horse required by the individuals during the program, regardless of how the horse performs.
Each year, First Turn Stable has made numerous trips to the winner’s circle. This year, the group is anxiously awaiting their turn. Jamie Macomber, one of the track’s top conditioners, is the trainer for the group. Two horses, King Leonidas and Medieval Dragon, were purchased for the group and made one start each. However, both horses were claimed from their respective races, so a third horse is currently being sought by Macomber for First Turn Stable.
First Turn Stable assembled for their kickoff party Friday, June 7. Amanda Gaskin is once again serving as the group’s coordinator for the 2019 racing season. First Turn Stable is open to the first 65 individuals who sign up. For more information, contact Gaskin at Harrah’s Hoosier Park.
