TIOGA DOWNS AND VERNON DOWNS WELCOME NEW REGIONAL RACING MARKETING MANAGER

Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs are pleased to announce Justin Horowitz as their new Regional Racing Marketing Manager.

Horowitz is a familiar face to the American Racing & Entertainment family as he previously served as the Senior Regional Social Marketing Coordinator for the past two years.

“Justin is an asset not only to our company but to the future of the sport of harness racing,” said Jason M. Settlemoir, Vice President of Racing and Simulcast. “His creativity and his knack for getting new fans interested in our sport are unmatched.”

Horowitz will continue his role as executive producer and host of the popular, weekly television show “Inside Harness Racing,” which can be seen on Time Warner Cable Sports throughout Upstate New York, HPI TV in Canada and online on the Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs You Tube channel (www.youtube.com/TiogaDowns).

“This is a great opportunity for me to continue to grow as a marketing professional within the horse racing industry,” said Horowitz. “Horse racing has always been a passion of mine and as a young person; I hope to help attract younger people like myself to our great game.”

Fans of Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs will still be able to interact with Horowitz via the tracks’ social media networks as he will remain administrator.
