In the heart of the Southern Tier Tioga Downs originated as a quarter horse race track back in 1974 known as TiogaPark. The track was revived and refinished to become the 5/8 mile harness racetrack we know today as Tioga Downs Casino in 2006. Tioga Downs features some of the top harness stake races in the country including the Grand Circuit Tompkins Geers, The $300,000 Cane Pace (1st leg of Pacing's Triple Crown) and it's lady counterpart The Shady Daisy. From May to September you can listen to the beat of the horses with live harness racing and enjoy year round simulcasting featuring the top thoroughbred and harness tracks from all over North America. Combine that with a Casino, promotions, good food and drink and top name entertainment ... Tioga Downs Casino is a great place to have fun at an affordable price.
