Perhaps not the most attention getting way to announce this, but nevertheless, BRAVO Hoosier Park for being a class act!

Please note the following Hoosier Park policy: Any trainer or owner stabling at Hoosier Park who directly or indirectly participates in the transport of a horse from Hoosier Park to a slaughter facility or to an auction to sell horses for slaughter will be prohibited from having stalls at the track.
