Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course continues to build upon its foundation of history and tradition that has made it a major force in the sports and entertainment market in Central Pennsylvania. Turf racing is featured on our nationally-acclaimed seven-furlong course. For added excitement, we simulcast the nation's best racing seven days each week.
The huge purses put Penn National on the national radar. Horsemen from California, Illinois, Florida and Texas like Doug O'Neill, Jamie Ness and Jevon Crumley arrived in Central Pennsylvania on a regular basis. Leading jockeys from other circuits luding Dana Whitney, Ricky Frazier, Clinton Potts, and Oliver Castillo helped build the strongest local riding colony ever.
While the newcomers have made quick favorable impressions on racing fans, longtime Penn National regulars still led the jockey and trainer standing in 2009. William Otero rode 176 winners from 953 mounts to best David Cora for the riding crown, while Stephanie Beattie won her second consecutive training title by saddling 112 winners from 509 starters.
Cora's 116 winners luding the winning ride aboard Cardashi in the 37th running of the $200,000 Pennsylvania Governor's Cup Handicap which was the richest race in track history.
