Tioga Downs to Close Simulcast Operations on Mondays and Tuesdays

Tioga Downs will be closing its simulcast operations on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning on Monday, November 8th.

The simulcast facility will be open on Mondays and Tuesdays on certain occasions when NYRA is racing, or when there is a holiday.

The decision was made by management after handle numbers for Monday and Tuesdays were low with the lack of racing product available for simulcast customers to wager on.

“With the struggling economy and lack of racing product available for our patrons on Mondays and Tuesdays, it was in the best interest of our business plan to make this adjustment," said Jason Settlemoir, VP of Racing and Simulcast. "As we head into spring we will re-assess the simulcast situation at Tioga Downs and go from there."

Tioga Downs will continue to simulcast Wednesday through Sunday, and the Tioga Downs gaming floor will continue to be open seven days a week.
