The New England Horseman's Benevolent and Protective Association submitted an application Oct. 1 to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to conduct a live meet at Suffolk Downs next year.
As live racing at Suffolk Downs winds down for the season, and likely forever, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission is seeking options for the continuation of Thoroughbred racing in the state.
Racetracks in Massachusetts could shut down Jan. 1, 2006, should they fail to strike a new agreement on simulcasts.
Hoping to recapture its popularity from nearly 30 years ago, the Brockton Fair in southeastern Massachusetts will open June 30 for a 30-day meet that will extend through Aug. 18. The meet originally was scheduled for 20 days.
