Philadelphia Park History

Philadelphia Park, a racetrack and casino in Bensalem, Pa., has changed its name to Parx Racing, according to the company’s website.

Philadelphia Park, popularly known as Keystone, was established in November of 1974. This park was purchased in 1984 by ITB in exchange of $40 million. After that, the racetrack incorporated a new name and a new turf course was made thereafter. In 1990, the racetrack was taken over by Greenwood Racing Incorporation, a renowned corporation that was founded in 1989 by British bookmaking veterans Bob Green and Bill Hogwood.

Philadelphia Park Racetrack, Turf Club and Phonebet handled over $510,000,000 in 1999, which is the highest in 25-year-old track’s history. A second step renovation of the racetrack began in 1999 and that was completed in May of the same year. The entire area transformed into a modern Turf Club with beautiful plush simulcast theaters, dining room, sports bar, horsemen’s lounge and a grand entrance made of marble and granite. The Racing Network was formed when Greenwood Racing entered into a partnership with Ontario Jockey Club, Ladbrokes USA, and International Investment and Underwriting Limited. Many famous horses like Shuvee, Gallant Bob, My Juliet, Spectacular Bid, Revidere, Summer Squall, Broad Brush ran to the winner’s circle at Philadelphia Park.
