Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will host two big nights of racing, family activities, and free fireworks, all for charity on Friday, Sept. 27 and Saturday, Sept. 28. The All-Star Standardbred drivers will be the stars of the show as they go head to head in two pari-mutuel races for their chance to win $5,000 for their respective charities.
Racing fans will have the opportunity to visit Club Centaur and select the All-Star driver of their choice to receive an entry to place intro your favorite All-Star Standardbred Driver's charity box. At the end of each charity race, the names of three lucky winners will be selected from the race winner's charity box to win up to $250 in free race wagers. Fans will also have the opportunity to donate $5 to a charity of choice and receive $5 in free slot play.
In addition to the $5,000 in total purse money offered, if the same driver finds themselves in the Winner's Circle for both celebrity races a total of $10,000 will be donated to the driver's charity compliments of Hoosier Park Racing & Casino.
