Since opening a world-class horse racing operation in 1994, Hoosier Park track itself consists of a 7/8 mile dirt oval and hosts throughbred and harness racing events.
Just north of Indianapolis, Indiana, Hoosier Park and Casino hosts more than 120 days of standardbred racing action every year, including the historic Dan Patch Invitational, as one of the signature racing events at Hoosier Park. Open to 4-year old and up pacers, and honoring Indiana's favorite racing son and arguably the greatest pacer to ever live.
Born in Oxford, Indiana in 1896, the namesake of the $250,000 Dan Patch Invitational Trot was one of the the greatest harness-racing colts the sport has ever seen, having never lost a race in his nine-year career, and setting 14 world speed records in the process. His official fastest time of 1:55 1/4 for the mile (set in a time trial rather than a race) stood for 32 years, and the unoffical time of 1:55 lasted until 1960.
A true sports superstar, Dan Patch traveled the country to speed exhibitions via a private train car. His image endorsed everything from toys to cereal to washing machines, and at his hieght he earned more than $1,000,000 a year for his owner – by comparison, baseball star Ty Cobb was earning less than $15,000 a year at the same time.
