Indiana Grand: Handicapping Contest Winner Donates Prize Money To Backstretch Worker

Indiana Grand Racing & Casino has been hosting an online handicapping contest this winter with the weekly winner receiving a $100 gift card. The contest has been attracting players from all across the country with an average of 70 participating in the event. Last week, the top handicapper, Terry Kinsley of Ohio, donated his card to a hard-working member of the backstretch at Indiana Grand. Lorenzo Jimenez of the Michelle Elliott Stable was the recipient of the card.

Jimenez, a native of Mexico, has been in the United States working with horses since 1995. His talents were mainly seen in Florida, but a few years ago, he moved over to work the sales near Ocala, Fla. and became acquainted with Elliott. As a result, he is now spending his second year working for her operation at Indiana Grand.

“Lorenzo is very hard working and is one of those unsung heroes you hear about on the backstretch,” said Dee Thoman, security shift supervisor. “He comes up every morning and gets his temperature taken and follows all the rules. He’s a pleasure to have on the backstretch.”

Kinsley asked that a backstretch worker be selected on his behalf to receive the award. Lorenzo received the $100 gift card, which was presented by Chris Polzin, director of racing/racing secretary, Tuesday, Feb. 23.
