The state horse RACING COMMISSION

 
On February 23, Governor Wolf enacted House Bill 941 into law. Now known as Act 7, the new law has established some much-needed reforms to Pennsylvania racing. As a part of this transition, the web presence will be revised in incremental stages to reflect the updates. Please continue to check back for the latest information. Thank you.

 

The State Horse Racing Commission represents the state 's racing industry.  Racing is managed under a common mission: to direct, regulate, secure and promote the horse racing and breeding industry in the commowealth.

Pennsylvania racing boasts one of the best racing program in the country.  The commonwealth is home to six state-of-the-art racing and gaming complexes and hosts harness racing at 16 agriculture county fairs.

The State Horse Racing Commision and the Department of Agriculture are committed to reinvesting in PA Racing and will continue to develop Pennsylvania's reputation as a superior place to breed, train, race and enjoy horses.
