Notice the differences between these two pictures?
As if one needs further proof that Penn National Gaming Inc. couldn’t give a hoot about horse racing, I noticed the other night two very different commercials that are running on our local television stations. It doesn’t take a genius to figure about which entity doesn't feel the least bit of compulsion to at least pay lip service to the fact that their Pennsylvania gaming license only exists due to (gasp!) horse racing.
Mea culpa in regards to the Hollywood Casino video: this version of the video available on YouTube is for their Bangor, Maine location, but it is identical in every way (except the closing frame with location noted) to the one running in Pennsylvania. Bangor Raceway/OTB is a harness racing track that conducted races 53 days this year, from May to July, and September to November. Not that you would know that from their commercial.
