Indiana Grand Racing & Casino will make history Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019 as it becomes the first Sports Book in the state. A special pep rally will lead into the commemorative ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of Winner's Circle Race, Sports, Pub.
“We are extremely excited and honored to open the first Sports Book in the State of Indiana,” said Ron Baumann, senior vice president and general manager of Indiana Grand Racing & Casino. “Our new Sports Book is a highly anticipated addition to our property, and we have worked hard over the past few months to redesign our current Winner's Circle to accommodate the newest option in gaming in the state of Indiana.”
The Pep Rally will get underway at approximately 12:45 p.m. followed by comments from several local dignitaries, including Mayor Tom DeBaun of Shelbyville. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Sports Book will officially launch legalized sports betting in the state of Indiana.
Sports available for legal wagers include professional football, basketball, baseball and golf. In addition, more than 100 other sporting events will be included in the new Sports Book at Indiana Grand.
The current Winner's Circle has been expanded to include an entire new section dedicated to sports wagers. This addition will complement the existing area already established as the off-track betting venue for horse racing and dining venue.
The event is open to guests 21 years of age and older. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place in front of the opening into the sports book inside Winner's Circle, which is located on the casino floor. Those in attendance will receive a commemorative ball cap while supplies last to signify the historic event in Indiana history.
