Centaur Green-Light To Buy Hoosier Park
The Indiana Horse Racing Commission granted permission to Centaur Inc "to proceed with its purchase of Hoosier Park from Churchill Downs," reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The deal (originally announced in December) "is expected to be finalised in mid-March"; Indianapolis-based Centaur has owned 38% of the Anderson-based track since December 2001 & held options to purchase a larger interest. Hoosier's signature races are the Gr2 Indiana Derby & Gr3 Indiana Oaks (run in early October).
