From a Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races release

Following approval at this morning’s West Virginia Racing Commission meeting, the first four months of Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races’ live calendar for 2019 have been set with 60 days of live racing slated to be conducted from January 9 through April 20 on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

Post time for the first race is scheduled for 7:00 P.M. EST on these days, with the exception of Charles Town Classic day, currently expected to be on April 20, which carries a 12:30 P.M. start time.

While the track has submitted a request for a 162 day calendar in 2019 following collaboration with the Charles Town HBPA, in order to meet procedural requirements, the remainder of Charles Town’s 2019 schedule is expected to be taken up at West Virginia Racing Commission meetings in the coming months.
