Presque Isle Downs, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, is pleased to announce a 20 percent across the board increase for all purses. This is effective with the races to be run Monday, Sept. 28 – for which entries will be taken today.

“This has been a challenging meet, to say the least,” said Todd Mostoller, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania HBPA. “But, the cooperation from every segment of the Presque Isle community, from the Churchill Downs management team, particularly Matt Ennis, the Director of Racing, to the owners and trainers, to the incredibly-devoted backstretch workers who care for these horses, has been nothing short of remarkable.

“The pandemic has forced everyone in racing to be creative, and to be resourceful,” Mostoller added. “There’s no better example of that than what continues to take place every day at Presque Isle Downs. This purse increase is a great way to say thanks to our great horsemen who stepped up big-time to support this meet.”

Racing at Presque Isle Downs will continue, Mondays through Thursdays, through Oct. 22, with a 4:45 pm first post.
