OMAK The final 20-horse field for this week's 81st World-Famous Suicide Race was settled following two runoff races Sunday.
Runoffs were needed to get the race to 20 horses after 24 had met vet, swim and hill tests and paid to enter races to be competed after each of the four Omak Stampede rodeos Thursday through Sunday.
