    Default Are there any PA trainers here, day rate question .

    Just curious if there are any trainers from Phily park or Penn Nat here , or owners? If so what are you charging or being charged day rate ? My trainers rates have gone up 20% about a year ago and performance has dropped . I used to train and had my trainers license back in the late 80s early 90s. I know the costs involved and it seems with the additional markup in day rate with over 50 horses in training that the 10% means less compared to the monthly training fee. Curious what other trainers day rates are in this area , training at the track.

    Over where it's HI in the middle and round on both ends.


    I have a friend paying $55 a day at Penn National, and another friend who charges $65 a day at Presque Isle.

    I could find reasonable assortment at $55/day at Penn a few years ago & some lower, some higher.

    But I haven't had a horse at the track for a couple years, so I dont know, now.
