DAVID AMISS, MARIO MADRID EACH WIN THREE ON MONDAY AT SUFFOLK DOWNS
EAST BOSTON, MA – David Amiss and Mario Madrid dominated Monday’s nine-race card at Suffolk Downs with three wins each.
Amiss began his triple in the fourth race with a front-running victory aboard Gesu ($4.40) for trainer Jay Bernardini. Amiss took the fifth, guiding Seeking Mischief ($5.60) to a maiden win for Ian Baker before teaming up with Tim Salisbury to take the featured eighth race with Fortheloveof Anna ($13.40).
Amiss is currently second in the jockey standings with 24 wins, two behind Tammi Piermarini. Madrid is tied for seventh with 10 wins for the season.
Suffolk Downs officials have canceled the live racing program scheduled for Tuesday, July 17 due to a forecast that calls for extreme heat and humidity.
“The health and safety of our athletes are always of foremost concern,” said Suffolk Downs Chief Operating Officer Chip Tuttle. “After consulting with our veterinarians, horsemen and jockeys, it was clear that canceling Tuesday’s card was the prudent course of action.”
The track will also be closed for simulcasting on Tuesday. Live racing and simulcasting are scheduled to resume on Wednesday. First post time is 12:45 p.m.
