Parx Racing is also one of the most premier off-track wagering facilities in the country and features Turf Clubs.

There are food services at each club, and each club has free admission and is open every day and night except for Christmas Day.
While enjoying the Penn Derby and Cotillion Stakes, be sure to visit the Turning For Home tables showcasing prized possessions for horse racing fans! All proceeds will benefit Turning For Home, a racehorse retirement foundation. You’ll have the chance to win a Smarty Jones halter and purchase googles, photos and more.
For such a special race day with the Penn Derby and Cotillion Stakes, wear one of fall’s top trending colors, rose to Parx Casino and Racing. Rose is like a softer shade of pink but is richer than a pastel, and it will be an unexpected color in the sea of typical darker fall colors. Rose is the perfect fall shade to debut on race day at Parx Racing.
