The Indiana Derby is an American thoroughbred horse race that was run from 1995 to 2012 at Hoosier Park in Anderson, Indiana. Since 2013, it has been held at Indiana Grand in Shelbyville, Indiana. It is the racetrack's signature event offering its current highest purse at $500,000.
The dead heat in the 2006 running was the first dead heat for the Indiana Derby. The result was contested by the owners of Star Dabbler who came out of the race injured. They believed he won the race so took the issue to arbitration but the result was upheld.
The 2009 win by Misremembered set a new track record.
2010 marked a groundbreaking year for the Indiana Derby and racing in the state of Indiana when Lookin At Lucky became the first winner of a Triple Crown race ever to race in the state of Indiana. Sent off at odds of 2-5, Lookin At Lucky won the race by 1 1⁄4 lengths in last-to-first fashion much to the delight of the ontrack crowd.
Bob Baffert became the first trainer to win the race two years in a row in 2009 and 2010 with Misremembered and Lookin At Lucky. He won his third Indiana Derby with Power Broker in 2013, and his fourth with Cupid in 2016.
