Tioga Downs will offer the first qualifying races of the season on Friday, April 29, at 11 am. Entries will be taken by the Racing Office at (607) 699-7688 until the box is closed at 10 am on Thursday, April 28. The next opportunity to get qualified will be Tioga’s annual “Press Night” on Tuesday, May 3, at 6:50 pm, under the lights. That evening serves as a dress rehearsal and offers the local press a chance to get reacquainted with the live racing. Call in for next Tuesday’s qualifiers by 10 am on Monday, May 2.
Also, the April 15 stakes payments have been tabulated and those lists are available on at the Tioga Downs website, for interested parties. The 2011 Late Closing slate looks promising and begins on “Opening Day” at Tioga, Saturday, May 7. Check the racing web page for the first condition sheet and make plans to come and race with us this spring. (Tioga Downs)
