Health & Pension

The PTHA is proud to offer health benefits and pension plans to its trainers, making Parx Racing one of the few racetracks in the country to provide such benefits.

Questions about health insurance, Stable Employee Benefits, or the pension plan should be directed to Benefits Coordinator Jaclyn DeSanctis by email or by calling the PTHA office at 215-638-2012.

The PTHA is proud to offer a comprehensive benefits program for its trainers. This program includes key elements such as general health coverage, assistance with prescriptions and copays, dental, optical and life insurance. This program is a direct result of the 2004 passage of Act 71, which legalized slot machines in Pennsylvania, enabling Parx Racing to become one of the few racetracks in the country to provide such a wide range of benefits to its eligible trainers.
