"Inside Harness Racing" Debuts New Technology



"Inside Harness Racing" puts viewers in the driver's seat.

We debut new technology that gives racing fans the chance to look through the eyes of a driver.

We strapped a GoPro® HD Hero Camera on driver Fern Paquet, Jr.'s helmet and sulky during morning training.

See what it's like on this week's episode of "Inside Harness Racing."

Viewers can see all the action tonight (Wednesday) at 6:00 PM on Time Warner Cable Sports throughout Upstate New York.

Viewers are encouraged to check their local listings for the channel in their area.

Canadian viewers can also watch "Inside Harness Racing" on HPItv during their morning programming.

Fans outside the viewing areas can watch the show and all previous episodes on the Tioga Downs YouTube Channel.

For the first time in its five-year history, the Tioga Downs Drivers' Championship included a first round held over the weekend at The Meadowlands.

We look back at Jody Jamieson's victory and look ahead to Sunday's $25,000 final round.

Plus, after a year away from the races recovering from an injury, Canadian pacer OK Commander continues his triumphant return to the track at Tioga Downs for trainer Gregg McNair.

"Inside Harness Racing" is a 30-minute, fast-paced look into the harness racing scene at Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs.

The program is hosted and produced by Justin Horowitz with production and videography by Jim Rotundo.
