Harrington Raceway and Casino

Harrington Raceway and Casino is a Racino in Kent County, Delaware, United States. It opened in 1946, at South DuPont Highway.

History of Harrington Raceway and Casino

1920 – The Harrington racetrack track was built for the first Kent and Sussex County Fair.

1962 Harness racing and other races were conducted annually as part of the fair (which changed its name to the Delaware State Fair in 1962).

1934 – The fair became an organization to coordinate harness racing dates at fairs in the Mid-Atlantic region. This organization is called the Central Fair Circuit.

1945 – The directors of the fair organized the Kent and Sussex Racing Association to conduct an annual racing meet. It happened after the state legalized pari-mutuel wagering on harness racing.

1946 – Harrington has been a harness racing town since a group of enthusiasts held a 60-day fairground meet in 1946.

1947 – The group formed an association called “The Harrington Raceway” and built the present-day track.

1964 – The racing association began planning to renovate the facility to match the weather to give a comfortable environment for the spectators during the colder autumn months when the racing meet was held.

1966 – Plans were formalized to construct a new track to the south of the existing facility. However, the high cost canceled the plan. Instead, a $1-million project was undertaken to build an enclosed clubhouse to enhance the grandstand and improve the heating.

1967 – Along with the improvements, the track’s name was changed from the Kent and Sussex Raceway to Harrington Raceway.

1968 – The construction was completed.

1994 – Delaware legalized slot machines at the horse tracks to save the racing industry. 

1995 – The majority of the fair board of Directors voted to build a slot parlor in March 1995.

1996 – Harrington’s slot machine parlor, Midway Slots, and Racebook opened on August 20, 1996.

2003 – The track was widened, and the turns were enhanced to become gentler, making it safer and more attractive to horse riders.

2006 – A $50-million expansion and renovation of the slot parlor commenced. 

2007 – As part of the project, the Midway Slots name was dropped, and the entire property became known as Harrington Raceway & Casino. Full House also ceded day-to-day operations of the gaming facility to Harrington.

2008 – The expansion was completed by adding a new restaurant, lounge, coffee shop, high-stakes gaming areas, an expanded buffet, and increasing the number of slot machines in the casino from approximately 1,600 to 2,100.

2010 – Table games were added following their legalization earlier in the year.

2011 – The management agreement expired, leaving Harrington Raceway full control of the casino.

2022 – Due to technical difficulties, the racino closed on December 27, 2022. But reopened in the same year – December 31, 2022.
