The Indiana Standardbred Breed Development (ISBD) and the Indiana Horse Racing Commission (IHRC) is once again hosting barn tours in one of the speed barns at the Indiana State Fair. The display opened Friday, Aug. 2 along with the 17-day Indiana State Fair, which runs through Sunday, Aug. 18.
Returning to the ISBD Standardbred display is Rockin Kimage from the Jeff Dever Stable. “Rocky,” a grey son of Rockin Image with a career best time of 1:56.0, was a huge hit in 2018 along with Emily Dever, who provided the guests with information about him as well as Standardbred racing in the state of Indiana. The display also includes retired racehorse V and C, a son of LCB owned by Rachel Leonard, for guests to interact with.
Nat Hill IV provided a high-wheeled sulky that is on display in the barn. Equipment, informational boards and other racing related information is available along with several take-aways for guests of all ages.
The display is open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. with extended hours on weekends. Stop by the Wolverton Speed Barn and check out the display courtesy of the ISBD and IHRC during the Indiana State Fair.
