Racing Season Opens at Tioga Downs
5/3/2014 (Updated 10:55:21 PM)Racing season is upon us and Tioga Downs gave area locals a chance to celebrate its 9th season of live harness racing.
The 7th Annual Derby Fest featured live music, fireworks, and of course--horse racing. Those attending had the chance to bid on their favorite horse, wear their best "derby hat," and even enter to win a thousand dollars to bet on the Kentucky Derby.
"To see people coming from all over the area to come and have a great time and have something to do, that means a lot. And that's all we've ever wanted to do was give people an affordable day out to have some fun," said Linn Redder, Vice President of Marketing at Tioga Downs.
Tioga Downs will continue the opening weekend of their racing season tomorrow with live horse races with a post time of 1:30.
