PA Horse Racing Industry

The Pennsylvania Horse Racing Industry has experienced significant
benefits from the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act of 2004
(Act 71). All licensed casinos, including those not affiliated with a track,
provide revenues to support both thoroughbred and harness horse
racing activities in Pennsylvania. In addition to the construction of
several new racetrack facilities, improvements have been made to
grandstands, stables and racetrack surfaces at existing facilities.

Horse racing is a vital part of agriculture and
the state of Pennsylvania’s economy.

Each racing facility provides hundreds of jobs which include drivers, trainers, security, maintenance and other non-racing positions.

Local farmers and businesses benefit from
the demand for feed, supplies and support
services to operate the thoroughbred and
harness racing facilities across the State.






What is a Racino?

A racino is a combined racetrack and casino. According to Act 71, there
were a total of seven Category 1 Casino Operator Licenses awarded
to Pennsylvania’s thoroughbred and harness racing facilities. Purses at
these racinos are subsidized by a percentage of slot machine revenue
earned at all casinos including those not affiliated with a track. Larger
purses attract better horses which helps to increase attendance of
veteran horse players who prefer betting on quality horses, as they
offer more consistency when placing wagers on races at the tracks.

Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture

Established under the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, the
Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission and Pennsylvania State
Harness Racing Commission collectively have jurisdiction over all horse
racing activities in the state as well as corporations engaged in these
activities. Both commissions provide regulatory oversight to maintain
the integrity of racing in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.


Pennsylvania Horse Breeders


Pennsylvania has always been a great state for breeding and racing
horses. With a percentage of slot machine revenue to fund state-of-
the-art racing facilities and larger purses, Pennsylvania will continue to
be a great place to raise, race and enjoy horses regardless of the
breed or style of racing. The Race Horse Development and Gaming Act
of 2004, (Act 71) also includes an incentive by offering larger purses to
race winners that were born and bred in the State of Pennsylvania.
