Harrington Raceway History

1946

  • On August 15, Harrington Raceway opened.

1996

  • Video lottery machines were installed as allowed by Delaware's new gaming legislation. The revenue from these machines enabled Harrington Raceway to increase the purse offered to winning horses.

2002-2003

  • The half-mile oval was reconstructed prior to the 2003 spring meet by trackmasters Dan and Greg Coon. The renovations resulted in wider turns and a faster racetrack.
