Harrah's Philly Dates Restored

Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack has revised its 2014 live racing schedule, with the 150-program season slated to now begin on March 28, 2014.

Just over one month ago, the Pennsylvania State Harness Racing Commission suspended the 2014 harness racing season at Harrah's Philadelphia pending required information on racetrack surface issues. At a hearing on Thursday, the Commission reinstated the race dates.

Reports indicate that Harrah's will be bringing in a consultant to oversee the work on the track to ensure that it's fit for racing on opening day.

The opening Friday card carries a first post of 12:40 p.m., which will remain the standard starting time throughout the season. The 2014 season will run through Sunday, December 14.
