This is a welcomed change for those of us who play the nighttime tracks.
Penn Gaming Tracks Stagger Night Post Times
Three Thoroughbred tracks comprising much of the nighttime simulcast market over the next few months have announced a coordinated plan to reschedule their post times beginning with live racing on Dec. 26.
The trio of tracks owned by Penn National Gaming—the Hollywood Casinos at both Charles Town Races and Penn National Race Course, as well as Sam Houston Race Park—have teamed up to arrange a schedule that will eliminate conflicts between the signals.
The new timetable will allow in upwards of 28 races at the three tracks to be scheduled no less than five minutes apart, with all but the second race at Sam Houston and fourth at Penn National being spaced at least six minutes apart.
