About Us: 

The owner, MTR Gaming Group, broke ground in October 2005 for its new facility, which opened on February 28, 2007. It contains 2,000 slot machines. The 1 mile (1.6 km) oval track opened on September 2, 2007. It is paved with the synthetic material Tapeta Footings (a mixture of sand, rubber, fiber with a wax coating[1]). It's the first synthetic horse racetrack that is longer than 1 mile (2 km) in the Northeast and the first racetrack paved with Tapeta in the United States.[1] Simulcasting was transferred from its former upper Peach Street location and became operational in August 2007.[2]

Some of the races at Presque Isle Downs include:

    Presque Isle Downs Masters Stakes, Grade II [3]
    Presque Isle Mile
    Tom Ridge Labor Day Stakes

The property is located on a 272 acres (110 ha) site off Exit 27 on Interstate 90 in Summit Township.
