Rosescroft Raceway is set for harness racing in 2012, receiving approval for 54 dates, racing Tuesdays and Saturdays from March 10 through June 2. Post time for all cards is set for 7:20 pm.
"The return of racing at Rosecroft was positively received," said Chris McErlean of Penn National Gaming, which bought the bankrupt track last year and opened last fall for a limited meet. "Obviously, modest purses and quality of racing, but we got the facility back up and running and brought jobs back."
Penn National Gaming is continuing its lobbying efforts to have slots permitted at Rosecroft so the company can made a bid for a slots license at the track.
