EAST BOSTON, MA - Suffolk Downs will expand to a four-day race week beginning August 1. Live racing will be conducted on a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Saturday schedule. First post time is 12:45 p.m.

The addition of Tuesdays to the racing schedule has been approved by the Massachusetts State Racing Commission. The number of Tuesdays with live racing will be determined by the status of legislation pertaining to the total number of required racing days for the year.

Both branches of the Massachusetts legislature have passed a bill reducing the number of racing days required to offer simulcasting from 100 to 80. The bill has not yet been signed into law.
