  Only Quarters Are The Slots!     

Tioga Downs   Tioga Park opened as a Quarter Horse Track in 1976. Racing lasted for three years then the track was shuttered. Once racino wagering was legalized in New York Jeffery Gural who was the roller coaster owner of Vernon Downs purchased the track. He quickly converted both tracks into racinos changing Tioga Park into Tioga Downs.

 Both tracks are still in business and have the added benefit of picking up New York Sires Stakes Races which were previously run at now defunct Syracuse New York State Fair meet.

 In 2011 Tioga Downs ran it's mid spring to mid fall meet highlighted by New York Sires Stakes races. Ed Hensley captured the driving title. The prestigious Cane Pace was moved to Tioga Downs but unfortunately Hurricane Irene flooded the track and officials were forced to move the race to nearby Pocono Downs. The cane Pace and harness racing are scheduled for 2012 at Tioga.
