History of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs Harness Racing Track

It started life in the 1960s...alternated between harness and thoroughbred racing in the 70s...attracted crowds of loyal fans throughout the 80s and 90s...and added casino excitement and most recently, prestigious national events like the Breeders Crown to what some people say is the nation's best track to race on. In this clip from the TV show 'PA HarnessWeek', we take a look back at the track's storied history through vintage photos and videos plus interviews from champion trainer Sam Beegle, leading driver George Napolitano, Jr, track officials like announcer Jim Beviglia and longtime publicist John Zimich.
