  • Owner David Raim hoping for big WVBC
    With a stable that includes undefeated Muad’dib, promising juvenile Run to Daylight, and others, owner David Raim is hoping for a big WVBC night.

The decision was not announced on the Parx Racing website, which in fact still had a banner reading “Live racing today.” Nor was it announced on the Parx Racing Twitter account, which has not tweeted in 10 months, or on the track’s Facebook page, which likewise has been inactive since last March.

However, the local horsemen’s group, the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, did post the information on its Facebook page Monday.

The Philadelphia area has been socked with heave snowfall, which is expected to continue into Tuesday.
