Biography: British gaming entrepreneurs Bob Green and William Hogwood purchased Philadelphia Park from ITB in 1990, forming Greenwood Racing, Inc. As Chairman of Greenwood, Green soon added full card simulcasting and six off-track Turf Clubs, and eventually joined Penn National Gaming which purchased Freehold Raceway and leased Garden State Park. Green is also credited with creating telephone and internet wagering applications. Through his efforts in the last 10 years helping to create legislation for expanded wagering, Act 71 made way for slot machines and table games at the state’s racetracks. Under the “parx” banner, he was instrumental in building the largest racing operation in Pennsylvania.
