SunRay Park in Farmington, New Mexico, will open its 36-day Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse meet with a nine-race program on Friday. Post time for the first race is set for 3 p.m. (MDT).

Longtime director of racing Lonnie Barber and new racing secretary Sean Winsor have put together a 17-race stakes schedule worth approximately $735,000 in purse money. SunRay Park will offer nine Thoroughbred stakes worth a total of $335,000 and eight Quarter Horse stakes worth approximately $400,000.

The meet’s richest race, the 350-yard, $100,000 New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG3) for state-bred 2-year-olds, will be contested on May 14 following trials on April 28. Closing weekend will feature the 350-yard, $80,000 Four Corners Futurity for 2-year-olds on June 18.

SunRay Park’s richest -- and longest -- Thoroughbred stakes, the 1 1/8-mile, $50,000 San Juan County Commissioners Handicap, will be run on closing day, June 19.

Eight of SunRay Park’s stakes, four for Thoroughbreds and four for Quarter Horses, are restricted to New Mexico-breds.

SunRay Park will offer live racing on a Friday-through-Monday schedule. First post time is set for 1:15 on Saturdays and Sundays and 3:00 on Mondays and Fridays.
