Pennsylvania's horse racing and breeding industries are a significant economic driver, across the Commonwealth.  We are not "The Sport of Kings," rather, we are your friends and your neighbors.  Our growing racing and breeding industries employ tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians, and generate billions in annual statewide economic impact.  Please watch this brief video, to learn more.
