In June and July, racing moves to five nights a week, with a Post Time of 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. A special earlier post of 3:30 p.m. on Fridays is a new addition to the race card. "We are really excited to offer this earlier post for our fans", said Dale Rapson, Vice President of Racing Operations. "We will offer the 3:30 p.m. Friday post for the two summer months, and again in September through closing in November, hoping to fill the void in between day tracks and night tracks. This will open up Pocono to new fans who may not have had the chance to watch and wager before, due to conflicts with other tracks. Plus, finishing our card earlier on Fridays gives fans a chance to enjoy an evening out after racing, whether they head out for a late dinner, or even high school football games in the fall".
The Breeders Crown will be held on one night, Saturday, October 19th. Eliminations for the tremendous night of racing will be held on October 11th and 12th. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs hosted the Breeders Crown in 2010, and welcomed nearly 10,000 fans to a historic night of world-class racing.
Racing in August through November 16, 2013, will continue on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday with the early post, and Saturday. A total of 140 race days is scheduled. The track will be closed March 31st; and also the week of September 8th for the PA Oktoberfest.
