Indiana Grand Diaries: What’s Driving New Interest In Racing, Breeding Programs?

by | 08.24.2016 | 6:48am

Over the weekend, three horseplayers earned spots in the National Handicapping Championship with Indiana Grand's first ever qualifier for the NHC. It's another step of many by the Centaur Gaming-owned racetrack to invest in the racing product.

The efforts have had far-reaching effects, with horsemen and owners from other states and regions shipping in for lucrative purses, investing in a breeding program that's gaining momentum and even setting up shop permanently in the Hoosier State.

Scott Jagow explores what's behind the changes in our latest Indiana Grand Diaries.
