When Tioga Downs begins its 2011 racing season this Saturday (May 7), it will expand the television coverage of its races.

The second season of 'Inside Harness Racing' will debut Wednesday, May 11 at 6:00 p.m. on Time Warner Cable Sports throughout upstate New York.

The weekly, 30-minute program will also be available online on Tioga Downs’ YouTube page. The aim of Inside Harness Racing is to provide an insider’s view of harness racing at Tioga Downs through highlights and interviews, plus creative and unique feature stories not available anywhere else.

Once again, the show will be hosted and produced by Justin Horowitz. Well-known Tioga Downs personalities Wendy Ross and Jason Settlemoir will also appear on air. Jim Rotundo is back for a second season and will provide videography and production assistance.

Tioga Downs will also debut a brand-new pre-race show starting May 13 which will air on the track’s simulcast signal. The program will be hosted by veteran harness racing insider Nick Salvi. He will provide a unique take on the day’s races. Salvi, the inaugural winner of the Peter Haughton Award, has spent more than four decades in harness racing as a driver, trainer and racing official.

“Television is one of the best ways to showcase our sport, and we think our expanded coverage helps to not only attract new fans both young and old, but also provide handicappers more information about our racing product,” said Jason M. Settlemoir, VP of Racing and Simulcast for Tioga Downs.
