The O’Malley Stakes, named for the track’s longtime executive who died in 2007, will take place on Saturday, October 22. The race is a six-furlong sprint over the main track for fillies and mares age three and up. Nominations for the race close Saturday, October 8. The undercard will include the John Kirby Stakes, a one mile and 70 yard route for three-year-olds bred in Massachusetts.
Suffolk Downs will continue its current Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Saturday live racing schedule through the first full week of October. The track moved to a four-day week in August. Live racing was added on Tuesday, September 27 and Tuesday, October 4 to make up for the forced cancellation of two racing days in August due to the effects of Hurricane Irene. First post time remains 12:45 p.m.
