The $150,000 Caesars S. and the $150,000 Horseshoe Indianapolis S. have been rescheduled for Saturday, July 13 at Horseshoe Indianapolis.

“Unfortunately, we had to postpone Caesars Day in mid-May due to torrential weather, which included over four inches of rain the evening before and forced us to cancel our racing program,” said Eric Halstrom, Vice President, and General Manager of Racing. “But we did not want to completely bypass both The Caesars and The Horseshoe Indianapolis. Those races have become a staple on our schedule each season. It just took our racing office staff, led by Chris Polzin [director of racing], a little time to find the best fit among other turf events offered in the Midwest. We think we've found a great spot for both races Saturday, July 13.”

The Caesars is a one-mile turf event for 3-year-olds, while the Horseshoe Indianapolis runs at the same distance for 3-year-old fillies. The Caesars, which began during the inaugural season of racing in 2003, enters its 19th running while the Horseshoe Indianapolis, which began in 2009, will be held for the 16th year.
