“In the past, Pompano had been shutting down around the time we opened, and then we were shutting down around the time they reopened, so we had a nice little thing going there,” said Jason Bluhm, the track's director of Racing. “Now that Pompano is racing year around we lost some of the Florida guys and have room for some new stables.”

Tioga Downs recently announced a purse increase of 10% to kick off the 2011 meet. The Open went from $15,000 to $16,500 and average daily purses are now $70,000.
