The owner of the casino in Shelbyville has renamed the gaming venue while also marking the completion of a nearly $34 million expansion and renovation project.

Caesars Entertainment Inc. on Tuesday changed the name of the venue from Indiana Grand Racing & Casino to Horseshoe Indianapolis Racing & Casino.

The casino broke ground last March on a 25,000-square-foot expansion of gaming space and the addition of a World Series of Poker Room with 20 tables.

In addition to construction jobs created by the project, the gaming company said 100 jobs were added to the casino payroll.

“Being able to link our property and services to the Horseshoe brand will enhance the gaming, racing, dining and entertainment experience for our guests,” said Steve Jarmuz, senior vice president and general manager at Horseshoe Indianapolis. “The addition of the World Series of Poker Room coupled with our Caesars Race and Sportsbook gives our guests a unique menu of gaming opportunities, all located on one floor.”

Caesar’s acquired Indiana Grand racetrack and casino from Centaur Gaming in 2018.
