“We welcome our friends from Canada to watch and wager on the races from Vernon Downs all season long,” said Jason Settlemoir, VP of Racing and Simulcast for Vernon and Tioga Downs. “Please make your tote companies aware of this change to Net Pool Pricing so there will be no snags come opening night. We want things to move as efficient and as smoothly as possible. This marks a new era in Vernon Downs history that will bring bigger pool sizes to the customers wagering on the Vernon Downs product.”
