Live Horse Racing Returns to Presque Isle Downs and Casino

All bets are back on over at Presque Isle Downs and Casino.

The live horse racing event is making it’s way back to Erie.

We spoke to spectators and trainers about the changes on the track and away from the stands.

After a long two months, horseback racing is back in action, but it comes with some major changes on and off the track to keep you and others safe from the virus.

Horse racing is back on at the track at Presque Isle Downs and Casino.

This comes with changes that Jack Cunningham never imagined in his 50 years of horse betting.

“It’s not as much fun. Part of the enjoyment is going out there, seeing the action and you feel like you’re right on top of it. It feels a little sterile in here. You’re not up close and personal,” said Jack Cunningham, Spectator.

This year the fans will not be allowed in the stands, but you can still place your bets in a socially distant area inside the casino.

For the first two weeks, races will take place on Monday through Wednesday.
