NYSS Prep Races Offered at Tioga for Monday

Tioga Downs will offer a matinee live racing card on the Memorial Day holiday, Monday, May 30 with a post time of 1:30PM.

Included on the condition sheet for that day are a battery of unofficial "Preps" for New York bred 3-year-olds of each sex and gait.

These races are designed to insure the Sire Stakes horses a start against other sophomores heading into the first leg of the program.

The "Preps" require entrants to be NYSS-eligible and do not count toward the point total kept for the NYSS Finals.

The purse for each is $10,000.

Entries are due for the May 30 Tioga card by 9AM on Friday, May 27.

The condition sheet is available on the Tioga Downs website.
