​Bureau of Thoroughbred Horse Racing

On February 23, 2016, the House Bill 941 was enacted into law. Now known as Act 7, the new law has established some much-needed reforms to Pennsylvania racing. As a part of this transition, the web presence will be revised in incremental stages to reflect the updates. Please continue to check back for the latest information. Thank you.

The Bureau of Thoroughbred Horse Racing has been established as a departmental administrative commission.  

The State Horse Racing Commission actively participates in all regional regulatory activities, offering reciprocity to all racing jurisdictions. Participation with the Racing Commissioners International (RCI) affords opportunities to interact with every racing jurisdiction in the North America.
