Brand new Harrah’s racetrack encompassing 60 redeveloped acres is a multi-million dollar project, but it is expected that it will bring about one thousand jobs to Chester, Delaware County. Local residents are being hired now. Moreover, the racetrack and the casino are expected to bring about $10 million in revenues for the City, and approximately the same sum for Delaware County.
The new track has already been tested. Harrah’s in Chester is expected to open for harness racing next month. A huge slot parlor is to follow early in 2007. So, they are in a hurry now to finish installation of grandstands infield and construction of parking lots.
Harrah’s expectation is about 10,000 gamblers per day for live racing, simulcast, and the one-armed bandits.
Harrah’s project is sure to be a success.
