The renovation has been in the works since January.

A $10m renovation project is currently underway at Delaware Park in an effort to “modernize its gaming floor,” according to a Delaware Online local news report.

The project started at the beginning of this year, more than 12 months after Delaware Park welcomed new owners. Prior to the change, the Rickman family owned and operated the property for nearly 40 years. The family sold the property to a joint venture between Rubico Gaming and a private equity firm called Clairvest Group, according to the local report.

Since the remodel began in January, the Stanton racetrack and casino has already implemented several changes, including additional amenities. Upcoming updates will include a new entryway, brighter lighting, as well as new carpeting and wallpaper.

Delaware Park Casino & Racing President and General Manager Terry Glebocki shared with local news that the previous décor has “had its day” and that new updates will freshen up the casino.

"There's a breath of new life in this property," Glebocki said.

Glebocki went on to add that the new owners had planned from the beginning to update the casino. Prior to the renovation, the destination featured antique light fixtures, "gauche" signage and wood paneling that gave an “aged look and feel” to the main casino floor.

Delaware Park Casino is home to a poker room and offers its guests access to slot machines and table games on two levels. Players can also place bets on college and pro sports, as well as on year-round simulcasting and seasonal Thoroughbred horseracing.
