Art Rooney Pace Pays Homage to Steelers Founder

The Art Rooney Pace remembers the venerable Hall of Fame founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers annually at Yonkers Raceway, and this year’s 26th edition will gather the eight top three-year-olds in training on Saturday night, May 28, for a purse of $300,000.

Empire City Casino’s historic half-mile harness racing oval will salute “The Chief” with a pair of promotions paying homage to the Rooney Family patriarch. The first 2,000 Empire Club members (one per member while supplies last) to visit a promotions booth beginning at 4:00pm will receive a custom commemorative Art Rooney Key Chain, depicting Mr. Rooney smoking his omnipresent cigar.
