Visitor Tips and News About Giant Horse Head
This is right out front of the casino and horse racing stadium. It's pretty big, but very hard to get a good picture because of the traffic moving in and out of the casino parking lot.[Sam P., 06/06/2016]
Giant Horse Head
A quote from a local resident: "You should come back in the morning; the horse head is beautiful in the sunrise."[Mary Cancilla, 07/03/2013]
This one is a must-see for all fans of the Godfather trilogy. In the front driveway of Parx Casino in Bensalem now stands IMHO the gaudiest and most ridiculous statue of a horse that I have ever laid eyes on. This "majestic" head of a horse, which appears almost as if it were severed with a dull knife, is huge. It just was erected and unveiled recently and it really has an odd feel to it, with the flashy casino in the background and located on a strip of suburban sprawl run amok, a huge severed horse-head seems slightly outta place (maybe a running race-horse statue would been less conspicuous). I'm assuming it's a permanent installation, but given it's so odd, who knows?[Mike, 08/28/2012]
The giant bronze head was unveiled at the entrance to the casino and race track on August 21, 2012.
