2014 Indiana-Bred & Indiana-Sired Stakes Schedule Available

In 2013, there were 22 restricted stakes races run as part of the Indiana Thoroughbred Breed Development Program. For 2014, the approved line-up of what is now 24 restricted stakes races will have some slight changes to their historical dates due to the Indiana Grand Race Course meet being pushed back from its normal mid-April start to accommodate their track renovations. The two additional restricted stakes races in 2014, the Sagamore Sired Stakes and the Swifty Sired Stakes, will be for Indiana-sired three-year olds at six furlongs on the dirt with $85,000 purses. These two new stakes will be run on June 4, 2014. The meet is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 6th and will run through Saturday, November 1st.
