Getting Ready at Tioga Downs


The Tioga Downs Racing Office staff has been busy preparing for Opening Day of the 2011 live racing season, which kicks off at 6:50 PM this Saturday, May 7.

We have some information to share regarding the draw schedule for this season.

The opening card feature is the Morrisville College Sale Late Closer for 3YO colt trotters, followed by Sunday's matinee program (1:15PM) showcasing 3YO pacing colts in a Late Closer named for the exciting young New York sire Kenneth J.

The lists of eligibles for Tioga Downs Late Closers may be found at the Tioga website.

This year's draw schedule for Tioga is as follows:
• Wednesday for Saturday and Thursday for Sunday

The box closes at 9AM for each and the Race Office phone number is (607) 699-7688.

Friday racing picks up next week on May 13 and we want to make horsemen aware of a change to the draw schedule for 2011.

Please be advised that Tioga will draw on Sunday morning for all Friday cards in 2011 with a box close of 10AM on those Sundays.

See ya at the races!
