Tioga Downs has announced it will offer New York Sire Stake Prep races to all NYSS eligible horses. The unofficial "Preps" are for New York bred three-year-olds of each sex and gait. These races are designed to insure the sires stake horses a start against other sophomores heading into the first leg of the program.

The "Preps" require entrants to be NYSS eligible and do not count toward the point total kept for the NYSS Finals. The purse for each is $10,000 and there is a $110 starting fee. Horses must show a clean line in 30 days meeting Tioga’s qualifying standards. The Prep races will take place over the first two weeks of live racing with the three-year-old colt trotters and pacers racing on opening day, Saturday May 5; the filly trotters on Sunday, May 6 and the filly pacers on the second week of racing going forward on Friday, May 11.

Tioga kicks off its 61-day meet on Kentucky Derby day, Saturday May 5, with a special post time of 5:00 p.m. The first draw takes place Wednesday, May 2 and the box closes at 9:00 a.m.

For more information, please visit or call the Race Office at (607) 699-7688.
