									Two More Barns Complete at Presque Isle Downs

Erie, PA, January 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Presque Isle Downs & Casino announced that two more
state-of-the-art barns have been completed that consist of 48 stalls apiece. The 1.3 million dollar project
gives the facility a total of 764 stalls including a 48 stall receiving barn and a 24 stall stakes barn.

This new addition will potentially allow races to run with larger fields of horses. In 2010 race fields
averaged 7.95 per race... in 2011 that number rose to 8. With the two additional barns that were in place
for the 2012 live meet that number rose to 8.2. Property officials are hopeful the fields will grow even
larger this year - though quality not quantity is the bigger concern.

“With the addition of two more barns we will be able to accommodate more horses,” said Mike
Tamburelli, Presque Isle Downs & Casino VP and General Manager. “We hope the fields will be larger
but more importantly to us is that we will continue to attract national-level competition.”

Currently the venue's premiere race is the Grade II Masters Stakes. “Our races have featured horses that
have gone on to win Breeder's Cup races, such as Groupie Doll, Musical Romance, Informed Decision
and Dubai Majesty. Gayego, who won the 2010 Presque Isle Mile and Noble's Promise, winner of the
2009 Fitz Dixon Memorial Stakes here both ran the Kentucky Derby in their 3-year-old season,” says
Presque Isle Downs & Casino Racing Director Debbie Howells.

Wise Dan who won the 2011 Presque Isle Mile has been mentioned as a nominee for an Eclipse Award
for Horse of the Year and Male Turf Horse of the Year. Both Groupie Doll and Musical Romance are
nominees for Female Sprinter of the Year.

“In a very short span we have gone from an ungraded race to Grade II, which is remarkable,” said
Tamburelli. “Our live racing product becomes better every year.”
