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.

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