Built by 3,000 workers in just 62 days when Massachusetts authorized pari-mutuel wagering in 1935, the historic track has been a showcase for some of the most famous names in Thoroughbred racing history, including Seabiscuit, Whirlaway, John Henry, Cigar and Skip Away.
In response to the mounting public health crisis and state of emergency here in Massachusetts and in an effort to help contain the spread of Covid-19, Suffolk Downs is temporarily suspending on-site simulcast operations.
We will be opening simulcast wagering pools during this time in order to facilitate wagering through our Advanced-Deposit Wagering partners, TVG, TwinSpires, NYRA Bets and XpressBet, and we encourage our guests to wager through those authorized service providers during this time.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you again soon when we resume normal operations.
