Check Six won the Monument Circle at Hoosier Park in 2016.

On Tuesday Hoosier Park drew post positions for Friday's $325,000 Dan Patch for older pacers. A field of 10 will go to post in the evening's 11th race on the 14-race card which gets underway at 6:30 p.m.

All Bets Off, third in the 2016 edition of the Dan Patch behind Wiggle It Jiggleit and Always B Miki, was installed as the 7-2 morning line favorite from post 2. Matt Kakaley is listed to drive the Ron Burke trainee.

Check Six, coming off a victory in the $224,400 Sam McKee Memorial at The Meadowlands last Saturday, was unfortunate to draw the far outside post 9. Yannick Gingras is expected to be in town to drive the 4-1 second choice.

The Dan Patch also features local standout Freaky Feet Pete who is coming off his first win of the year last week over this surface. Trace Tetrick will be in the bike behind the 8-1 morning line option from post 5.

The Dan Patch was meant to offer a $300,000 purse but that total was upped when the connections of Rock N' Roll World plunked down $25,000 to supplement to the race. "We made the decision at 11:30  this morning," said co-owner and trainer Jeff Cullipher. "We were bummed that he wasn't eligible without the supplement fee, but this race was definitely on our radar."

Rock N' Roll World starts from post 7 at 10-1 on the early line with John Delong listed to drive.

Rounding out the field are: Dealt A Winner (Post 1), McWicked (Post 3), Manhattan Beach (Post 5), Dr J Hanover (Post 6), Rockin Ron (Post 8) and Wakizashi Hanover (Post 10--2nd tier).
