Suffolk Downs History

Suffolk Downs opened in 1935, a year after parimutuel betting was legalized in Massachusetts. The first Massachusetts Handicap was also held that year. On August 18, 1966, The Beatles played a concert before 24,000 fans on the track's infield. Between 1990 and 1991, there was no racing at Suffolk Downs. In 1992, the track was reopened and in 1995, the MassCap returned from a six-year hiatus.

In 2008, Suffolk Downs became the first race track in the country to implement a zero-tolerance policy towards horse slaughter. The policy states that if a horse from Suffolk Downs is sold for slaughter, the trainer and owner of that horse will be banned from the grounds for life. Suffolk Downs, the Fields Family Foundation and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation established a home for retired racehorses at the Plymouth County Sheriff's Farm in Plymouth, MA, where inmates from the Plymouth County Correctional Facility care for the horses.
