Bedford Downs can reapply for harness racing license

NEW CASTLE, Pa. — It appears its back to the Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission for two groups vying for the state’s last harness racing license.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued a ruling late Monday upholding the earlier decision to deny a racetrack license for proposals in both Lawrence and Beaver counties.

However, the court’s decision stated that both could reapply for reconsideration by the harness racing commission.

New Castle businessman Carmen Shick, who along with his two siblings has proposed a race track and casino near the Ohio border on U.S. Route 422, said his attorneys were still studying the decision and had not advised yet how to proceed.
