2020 Live Racing Schedule Announced
at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino

SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (Jan. 16, 2020) – The Indiana Horse Racing Commission (IHRC) has approved racing dates for the upcoming 18th season of Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse Racing at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino. Racing will begin Tuesday, April 14 and conclude Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020 with a slightly altered schedule for the 120-day race meet.

Racing will be held the first week of the meet on Tuesday and Wednesday only, picking up Friday and Saturday racing beginning April 24 and 25. The meet will also end with racing only on Tuesday and Wednesday with the final Saturday racing program set for Breeders Cup Night Saturday, Nov. 7. No Thursday racing will be held in 2020, and those dates were added on to the end to extend the season by an additional week.
“We have been diligent in studying business trends and taking into account what is best for our racing partners, we decided to adjust our racing schedule for 2020,” said Mike Rich, senior vice president and general manager of Indiana Grand. “Our biggest revenue driving days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. By dropping six weekend dates throughout the year and placing our focus on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we will be able to provide more calendar weeks of competition for our horsemen while producing the best possible handle results which directly affects purse money. We are constantly working to do what is best for our racing program at Indiana Grand.”

Indiana Grand will follow the same post time format for 2020. Racing will begin at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday while Saturday action gets underway at 6:15 p.m.

More information regarding 2020 special events and stakes schedules for both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing will be available soon.
