Penn National creates $500,000 Penn Mile

Penn National Race Course will hold a $500,000 race for 3-year-olds going a mile on the turf on the first Saturday in June this year, the richest race the Pennsylvania racetrack has ever carded, the track announced on Tuesday.

The $500,000 Penn Mile is part of a three-stakes card on June 1 that will also include the $250,000 Mountainview Handicap for 3-year-olds and older going 1 1/8 miles and the $150,000 Pennsylvania Governor’s Cup for 3-year-olds and older at five furlongs on the turf.

Penn National, located in Grantville, Penn., has never been a regular destination for high-quality horses, but many racetracks that are heavily subsidized by slot machines and other casino revenues, such as Penn National, have recently created high-dollar stakes races in order to attract horses to their facilities and gain attention in the simulcast market.
