The frustration continues for horsemen, fans, and track management at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, as a morning-long ice and freezing rain storm forced the cancellation of live racing on Wednesday night, February 19. Full-card simulcasting will continue to be available on-property.

Penn National has only been able to host one live racing card in February. After running on February 1,  the four live programs for the weeks of February 5-8 and February 12-15 were cancelled due to a series of snow storms and below-freezing conditions.

The track hopes to get back to live racing on Thursday night, February 20, at 6PM

    They are taking money from the state that should be going toward property tax relief, they don't have the right to cancel racing without taxpayer approval!
