The Suffolk Downs track’s owners cleared a key hurdle Thursday as they race to close a deal to sell the property next month to a local developer.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted to approve the sale, a necessary step for track owner Sterling Suffolk Racecourse to continue thoroughbred racing and simulcasting at the 161-acre property after selling it to an affiliate of The HYM Investment Group of Boston. The two sides have set a closing date of April 27.
