Mohegan Sun Pocono

Mohegan Sun Pocono is a Racino (horse-racing track and casino) in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States. It opened in 1965, at Hwy 315.

History of Mohegan Sun Pocono

1965 – A harness racing track opened on July 15, 1965, located on the hillside of Plains near Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and within easy access to New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware. A harness racing track that is a member of the U.S. Trotting Association, a well-known, recognized one of the best smaller-sized tracks and one of the country’s safest racing surfaces.

1969 – At first, the track was developed for harness racing. However, starting in 1969, the track started to run thoroughbred racing on the venue when Pennsylvania authorized wagering on that breed.

1971 – A near-riot started when some fans were disappointed by the exacta payoff, less than the winners’ price. Several drivers were suspended for the incident, while the leading Jockey Mary Bacon, was kidnapped at knifepoint on her way to the track. Fortunately, she escaped safe and sound.

In mid-1972 – The track stopped operating when hurricane Agnes brought a great flood and destroyed the residents’ houses. Hence the track sheltered the evacuees in the meantime. 

1980 – The track ran its last thoroughbred race on October 28, 1980. The track ceased running thoroughbred racing and returned to running harness racing full-time.

1996 – The track’s parent company, Penn National Gaming, Inc., purchased the track from the estate of the late Joseph B. Banks in November 1996.

2005 – The track was sold again to the Mohegan tribal gaming authority (MTGA) (current owner) for $280 million in January 2005.

2006 – After receiving the state’s license, they began rebuilding the track to have a race track and the Mohegan Sun. They added a casino area with 2,300 slot machines, food courts, and offices.

2010 – Table games were added.

2013 – A 238-room hotel tower was built, converting the property into a full-fledged resort casino. Although the track remained an attraction, the updated name shifted the highlight toward casino gambling. They renamed the property to Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs but then revised the facility name entirely to Mohegan Sun Pocono. The racing oval officially became a part of the Mohegan Sun Pocono, named The Downs.
