    About Penn National Racetrack


    Very few thoroughbred racing tracks in America actually host events all year long. Penn National Race Course in Grantville, Pennsylvania (about 20 miles east of Harrisburg) is one of those rare creatures. Over 200 live racing days were on the 2012 calendar, including every Friday and Saturday from January through December. Another 200 days are on the calendar for 2013.


    Penn National opened in 1972 with a one-mile dirt course and a seven-furlong turf course. Business picked up in 2008 with the arrival of the Hollywood Casino, which came just in time to keep the racetrack humming along through the sport’s economic downturn. Although no graded stakes are run at Penn National, over $1 million was available in purses for the 20-plus ungraded stakes run in 2012.


    The signature race at Penn National is the $200,000 Pennsylvania Governor's Cup Handicap (five furlongs, turf, 3 year-old and up), run every year since the track first opened. This late-July race has become a useful prep for the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint; Chamberlain Bridge won both races in 2010 as a 6-year-old. Another $200,000 was added to the pile with the running of the inaugural Fabulous Strike Handicap (six furlongs, dirt, 3-year-olds and up) on November 21, 2012.


    On the same day, Penn National Gaming announced their intention to split their racino interests from their real estate holdings. This is a tax-saving measure that Penn says would save millions of dollars if approved. Penn National Race Course is one of 17 properties the company hopes to spin off in this fashion.
