NM Racing Commission Sets Dates for 2013 Race Meets
RSS Feeds Friday, August 24, 2012
The New Mexico Racing Commission on Thursday set the state's racing calendar for 2013.

SunRay Park in Farmington will conduct a 39-day meet, while The Downs at Albuquerque will run a 57-day season that will include a 17-day New Mexico State Fair meet in September. Ruidoso Downs' 2013 season will run 60 days from May 24-September 2, followed by a 56-day Zia Park meet opening September 7.

Earlier this year, the commission approved a 76-day meet for Sunland Park, which will run from December 7, 2012-April 16, 2013.

Citing competition from the nearby Northern Edge Navajo Casino, which opened in January, SunRay Park officials lobbied the commission for a 38-day season, which would have been four days shorter than this year's 42-day meet. The New Mexico Horsemen's Association, through its executive director, Jack McGrail, requested a 44-day season.
