Commentary: Expect ‘Significant Upgrades’ After Caesar’s Purchase Of Hoosier Park

Earlier this week, Caesar Entertainment announced its plan to purchase Centaur Gaming, encapsulating both the Indiana Grand and Hoosier Park racinos in the state of Indiana. According to The Herald Bulletin, industry analysts expect to see positive changes in the two properties, provided that the Indiana Gaming Commission and Indiana Horse Racing Commission approve the deal.

“They tend not to come in and run the same types of properties,” suggested Edward Feigenbaum, publisher of Indiana Gaming Insight. “They invest. You can expect to see significant upgrades, potentially a hotel and changes coming from having a little deeper pockets than perhaps Centaur has.”

“I think if you look at their other locations across the country and even in Indiana, they are quite a big deal, they don’t spare any cost to roll out the red carpet,” said Matt Rust, executive director of the Madison County Visitor’s Bureau. ”There’s still a lot to be dealt with and details to be worked out, but I think it could be a great thing for Anderson and for Shelbyville.”

The possibility of a hotel at Hoosier Park has also been raised, Rust allowed.
