Come To The Track, Win A Free Vacation

Published: July 3, 2013 11:47 am EDT

How does the idea of going to the racetrack and winning a free vacation sound?

That’s the theme at Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs this coming weekend during the annual 'Back to the Track' celebration.

Back to the Track, a U.S. industry-wide promotional campaign, will be celebrated at Vernon Downs this Friday and Saturday evening, and at Tioga Downs this Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

The highlight of the weekend at both tracks is the opportunity to win a trip to both the Little Brown Jug in Delaware, Ohio and the Breeders Crown at Pocono Downs, two of the premier events in harness racing.

Other highlights include a commemorative t-shirt giveaway (while supplies last), breakfast with the pros, starting-gate rides, winner’s circle photos, $1 food and drink specials and fireworks following live racing.

Fireworks will take place at Tioga Downs on July 4 and at Vernon Downs on July 5.

On Sunday, there will also be a concert by the Jason Wicks Band, a popular local country music group, during the races at Tioga.
