Tioga Downs to Keep 'Takeout' at State Minimums


Last year, Tioga Downs experimented with a pilot program to lower its wagering takeout rates to New York State minimums.
Tioga Downs has announced that it will continue with the program in 2011.
For the 2011 race season the takeout will be: 15% Win Place Show; 17% Exacta/Double and 21% for all other exotics.
The original Tioga Downs takeout rates were 18% for Win Place Show; 20% for Exactas/Doubles and 25% for all other exotics.
Jason Settlemoir, Vice President of Racing at Tioga Downs said they received a lot of positive feedback from horse players across the country.
Settlemoir believes that more tracks should make the move to lower takeouts.
Tioga Downs kicks off its 2011 race season on Kentucky Derby Day, Saturday, May 7, 2011 with a post time of 6:50 pm.
