In a continued effort to enhance race horse owners’ on and off-track experiences, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino recently launched an exclusive Owner’s VIP club, which aims to provide horse owners with a higher level of personalized services and special perks when attending live racing at Hoosier Park.
The initiative was developed to support on-track hospitality and facilitate accommodations when visiting Hoosier Park. An individualized portfolio will be created for each member to help develop a more customized racing experience. Benefits include four complimentary racing programs on race nights, dining discounts at all Hoosier Park food and beverage outlets, and discounted race DVDs. Also, owners enrolled in the club will receive exclusive bonuses, discount group bookings, free t-shirts and other promotional material when available.
Hoosier Park’s Showroom Sales Executive, Amanda Gaskin, will oversee the Owner’s VIP Club and provide concierge services for dining reservations, hotel stays and group outings to Hoosier Park. All members of the Owner’s VIP club will be invited to an End of the Year party hosted by Hoosier Park.
“We are committed to continually enhancing the racing program for our fans,” Jim Brown, Centaur’s president & COO added. “It is a thrilling experience to own a race horse and even more exciting to see your horse in the winner’s circle. The Owner’s VIP Club is a great example of enhancing that activity. Our goal is to further improve an owner’s race day experience plus provide a level of special perks for those investing in race horses. We believe this new program will be a fun way to boost that experience for our owners.”
To enroll in the Owner’s VIP Club at Hoosier Park, an individual must hold an Indiana Horse Racing Commission license and must present his or her license to redeem the club benefits. While membership is free, some benefits are only available on nights that an owner has a horse entered to race and some blackout dates may apply.
For more information or to join the Owner’s VIP Club, interested parties are encouraged to contact Amanda Gaskin at 765-609-4631.
Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule with a daily post time of 5:45 p.m. The 160-day all harness racing season will be conducted through November 12, 2016.
