Hoosier Park: Thompson tops all-time, list


Terry Thompson became Hoosier Park's all-time leading jockey with his winning ride aboard Big Pain in Monday's 10th race. Thompson entered the Hoosier season two wins behind Jon Court on the list of career victories at the track.

Thompson's record-setting ride came aboard Big Pain, who won by five lengths. The win gave Thompson 390 career wins at Hoosier, topping Court's mark on his 14th ride of meet.

The sale of Hoosier's signal is off to a strong start this year. Wagering on live racing topped the million-dollar plateau three times in the opening four cards of the season. Wagering last year topped $1 million only once through an opening weekend that offered five programs.
