Tioga Downs Trying to Bring Racing Fans Back

'Tioga Downs in Nichols, New York will feature a 15-week harness racing season that is expected to start June 9, simulcast horse racing, 750 video lottery terminals and year-round entertainment.'

Jeffrey Gural's silent partner in his Tioga Downs project is New York......
Gural, a New York City real estate magnate, and partners plan to spend about $32 million to reopen Tioga Park as Tioga Downs racino by May 27, with harness racing expected to start June 9, pending regulatory approval from the New York State Racing and Wagering Board and possible construction delays. The track with 750 video slot machines is expected to create about 375 jobs in a variety of occupations. Ground was broken on the project in July 2005.
