The Midway Slots has the first 5 progressive games in Delaware. Shipwrecked, the popular 5 progressive has 42 games linked and has had jackpots from $900 to $40,000.

Approximately 12% of machine wins go to purses. This has resulted in Harrington Raceway being able to distribute $110,000 in purses nightly and establishing itself as a top track on the national circuit.

Harrington Raceway History

1946 - On August 15, Harrington Raceway opened.

1996 - Video lottery machines were installed as allowed by Delaware's new gaming legislation. The revenue from these machines enabled Harrington Raceway to increase the purse offered to winning horses.

2002-2003 - The half-mile oval was reconstructed prior to the 2003 spring meet by track masters Dan and Greg Coon. The renovations resulted in wider turns and a faster racetrack.
