Indiana Downs is offering a very attractive $50,000 guarantee to the All Stakes pick 4 for the Indiana Derby card. The pick 4 includes the $100,000 Mari Hulman George Stakes, The $100,000 Michael G. Schaefar Memorial, the grade III $200,000 Indiana Oaks and the gem of Indiana racing, the grade II $500,000 Indiana Derby

 

 

Our ticket is centered around the Indiana Oaks and the sensational filly Fiftyshadesofhay. The Baffert charge might just be the second best 3 year old filly in the country next to Princess of Sylmar who she was defeated by in the grade I Alabama Stakes at Saratoga. 

 

The Indiana Derby is our pay-off leg. We're looking for a couple upset chances with the #2 Mr. Palmer and the #10 Bradester but none of us can get past the talent and class of #6 Power Broker.

 

Below is our $0.50 pick 4 play.

My journey into the sport of kings has been different than most. I do not boast a royal pedigree, and in fact, before my interest in horse racing, my family thought the Kentucky Derby was the only race of the year! I'm the son of a minor league baseball player and a homemaker, which doesn't exactly scream grade I winner.


My passion for the sport started about 8 years ago.I was watching as Funny Cide was making his triple crown run. The “Gutsy Gelding” had my eyes glued to the television with each of his triple crown races. After watching Funny Cide on TV. I decided to make a trip down to our local track, Indiana Downs.This would be an experience that would change my life.

I looked over the program, while having no idea what I was doing,I decided to put my 5 dollars on a horse named Apollonea. As the gates broke and the announcer began his race call, I heard the words Apollonea to the lead. My excitement grew as I watched my horse lead all the way around the track, eventually drawing to win by an easy five lengths. Apollonea paid 58.00 to win, I was hooked from that point on.

For the past 8 years my life has been horse racing.  I've tried to educate myself on every aspect of the sport and learn about it's past. The incredible run of the Super Filly Rachel Alexandra would also change my life. It was my intense passion and love for Rachel that would bring me to meet some of the greatest  people in the world. I owe a lot to Rachel and this sport for introducing me to such wonderful people.


I want this blog to show that Indiana Racing stacks up with any track, anywhere! It will also show what great value can be found in Indiana for the bettors, and not to mention, the incredible purses for the owners and trainers.
