Tioga to release ADW platform

Thursday, February 18, 2010 - by Dustin Ross, regional racing operations manager, Tioga/Vernon Downs

Nichols, NY --- Tioga Downs has reached a contractual agreement with eBet Technologies to create a dedicated ADW platform. Hopes are high to launch the Tioga Downs eBet Web site, which would offer internet and phone wagering, sometime in 2010.

“This is something we have been looking forward to doing at Tioga Downs for quite some time now, and we are proud to partner up with eBet Technologies to bring the latest betting software to our customers,” said Tioga's Jason Settlemoir. “I want to thank the Southern Tier Harness Horsemen’s Association (Tioga Downs’ representative horsemen’s group) for supporting this initiative. They are always willing to stand behind new ideas and give them an opportunity to succeed.”

“We are excited to be working with Tioga Downs in their constant efforts to engage and build a relationship with their customers,” said Mark Gregory, President and CEO of eBet. “By offering a local solution, eBet can help Tioga grow revenue and take control of the fastest growing segment of their business.”

As of today the eBet ADW platform is pending regulatory approval of the New York State Racing and Wagering Board.

Zweig format to change for 2012

Friday, February 12, 2010 - by Jason Bluhm, Director of Racing, Tioga Downs

Nichols, NY --- The Dr. Harry M. Zweig Memorial for 3-year-old trotters (an open and filly division) will have a new format and a new purse when the rich and historic race goes postward in 2012.

Starting with the yearlings being nominated in 2010 to race as 3-year-olds in 2012, the single final and consolation format that is taking the harness racing world by storm will replace the current practice of racing divisions.

The newer system would take the top nine money earners from 2012 that declare and place them in an estimated $400,000 Open final ($170,000 estimated Filly final). The next nine highest money earners that declare for the Open would race in a consolation for an estimated $80,000 (Filly consolation $40,000). Any horse that declares for the race and does not draw in will receive a refund of their 3-year-old payments. The added money for the two events will also increase from $75,000 to a minimum of $125,000.
