OMAK – The World-Famous Suicide Race will required two qualifying heats at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5.

The Owners and Jockeys Association, which puts on the Suicide Race after each performance of the Omak Stampede Rodeo from Aug. 9 to 12 uses the heats to reduce the field to a maximum of 20 horses.

Up for grabs each race is $1,500.

A veterinary check is at 1 p.m. followed by an honor song and Calcutta.

A Suicide Race button will be required to view the race along the dike next to East Side Park.

The final field appeared to be pretty small after Friday night’s qualifying with online nine horses paid.

But a flurry of entries, which cost $300 per horse, were received 5-8 p.m. Saturday.
