Indiana-breds in spotlight in two sprint stakes


Older Indiana-bred horses get a chance to strut their stuff Wednesday in the 20th running of the Merrillville Stakes for ladies and the 18th running of the Brickyard Stakes for males at Indiana Grand Race Course. Each race covers six furlongs and is worth $85,000. Ten will contest the Merrillville, and 12, plus two also-eligibles, were entered in the Brickyard.
