The long-awaited arrival of the 37th edition of the Breeders Crown, presented by Libfeld-Katz is here. Harrah’s Hoosier Park has endured a unique preparation process due to COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, both Friday, Oct. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 31 will be a ticketed only event to view the races live at the track. The areas connected to the grandstand will close at 3PM to get prepared for the 6PM post both nights.
Tickets were limited to owners, sponsors, Indiana horsemen and horsewomen and other VIPs. Harrah’s Hoosier Park announced Thursday night there are a few tickets that have been made available on a first come, first serve basis for Friday’s racing program. Those wishing to attend the first night of the Breeders Crown may check into ticket availability by calling (765) 609-4616 for reservations.
Because of the limitations on crowd size, to adhere to state regulations, Harrah’s Hoosier Park and the Hambletonian Society have teamed up to offer live streaming of both nights free of charge through the track’s Youtube channel. Also, free programs for both nights are now available on the track’s Website under the racing tab on the homepage. A link to the Youtube live streaming is also available under the racing tab.
The Indiana Standardbred Association will be trackside for all the action of both Breeders Crown nights. A total of 11 Indiana sired horses will be included in the 12 Championships of the $6 million Breeders Crown. Full coverage of the event will be available in a special edition of the ISA Magazine, due out in mid-November.
