Local News

This will be an exciting weekend for horse racing fans as the Kentucky Derby kicks off tomorrow.  

You can watch the derby at Presque Isle Downs.  And, you can bet on the race through the drive-thru wagering offered in the lower parking lot of the casino. 

Allan Plever, Racing Secretary at PI Downs, tells us, “We’re going to have upwards of 750 horses stabled back there. Plus, horses ship in from around the area and we’re looking forward to a great meet here.”

Presque Isle Downs is also prepping for its upcoming horse races that will begin in less than two weeks.  Employees took some time out today to clean and smooth out the race track.
