Presumably conjectures:
For n>=2 numbers in this sequence are divisible by 25.
For n>=7 numbers in this sequence are divisible by 25^2.

FORMULA
a(n) = denominator of 8*Catalan + Pi^2 - Zeta(2, (4*n + 1)/4), with the Hurwitz Zeta function, and Catalan is given in A006752. [See the name with Zeta(2, 1/4) = Psi(1, 1/4) = 8*Catalan + Pi^2, and the Trigamma function Psi(1, z).]
MAPLE
r := n -> Psi(1, 1/4) - Zeta(0, 2, n+1/4):
seq(denom(simplify(r(n))), n=0..16); # Peter Luschny, Nov 14 2017
