    About Suffolk Downs Racetrack


    The future of horse racing in Massachusetts is on the minds of everybody at the state’s oldest thoroughbred track. State officials legalized casino gambling in November, 2011, and Suffolk Downs (opened 1935) is one of at least eight companies actively pushing for a license. Only one of these licenses, if any, will be granted to Eastern Massachusetts.


    Just another day at the races, it was the legalization of pari-mutuel betting in 1934 that allowed Suffolk Downs to exist in the first place. Among its original builders: Charles F. Adams, the first owner of the NHL’s Boston Bruins. Suffolk Downs proved to be a sharp investment when over 35,000 people showed up on the first day of racing.


    In 1935, the track also saw the first running of the Massachusetts Handicap. Adams and his syndicate put up a purse of $75,000, which translates to over $1.2 million in 2012 dollars. The race naturally became one of the country’s most important thoroughbred events; past winners from that era include Seabiscuit (1937), Whirlaway (1942) and Stymie (1947).


    The “MassCap” has had its ups and downs since then. Suffolk Downs closed in 1990 and 1991 before the sport’s revival – Cigar and Skip Away both became two-time MassCap champions as the race returned to prominence. However it hasn’t been run again since 2009.


    There’s still live racing at Suffolk Downs from June to November on the standard one-mile dirt oval and seven-furlong turf course. Since Suffolk Downs is the only active thoroughbred track remaining in New England, the odds of getting that casino license and bringing back the MassCap are pretty good.
