Live racing at Horseshoe Indianapolis was canceled Wednesday as a result of rains that passed through the area.

“Out of concern for the safety of our equine and human athletes that the races for Wednesday, May 15, have been canceled,” Horseshoe Indianapolis Vice President and General Manager Eric Halstrom said on the track’s X feed.

Rachel McLauglin, the on-air racing analyst and production manager for the track, posted images on X showing widespread flooding on and around the racetrack.

Nine Thoroughbred races were carded for Wednesday, including the first open stakes of the 2024 meet, the $150,000 Horseshoe Indianapolis H. for 3-year-old turf fillies, and the colts’ counterpart, the $150,000 Caesars H., each carded for a mile on the grass. The $100,000 Swifty Sired Fillies’ H. and $100,000 Sagamore Sired H. were also scheduled to be run.

According to a post from Daily Racing Form‘s Marcus Hersh, the two Indiana-sired stakes will be brought back May 22. The status of the Caesars and Horseshoe Indianapolis Handicaps was to be determined.
