Hoosier Park History

It was in 1992, when the decision of opening a racetrack in Anderson, Indiana was granted. This is , in fact, the first racetrack outside Kentucky owned by Churchill Downs since 1939 and eventually in 1994 a contract was signed for construction of the Hoosier Park. Hoosier Park Racetrack opened to a crowd of 7,633 on September 1st 1994.

Off-track betting facility started nearly four months after inauguration of the racetrack at 7610 Broadway in Merrillville. On the eve of its first anniversary, Hoosier Park Racetrack introduced thoroughbred racing meet and a crowd of 5283 turned out to see Minnatoga win the first race.
