SunRay Park Cuts Races, Stakes Purses
RSS Feeds Monday, May 07, 2012

Following an agreement with the New Mexico Horsemen's Association, SunRay Park in Farmington will cut the number of races it runs per day from 11 to nine.

The reduction will go into effect beginning Tuesday, May 14. SunRay Park management suggested the move, as its casino revenues have decreased since the January 16 opening of the Northern Edge Casino on the nearby Navajo reservation.

Both SunRay Park and the NMHA have agreed to review the nine-race provision after the track's second condition book.

Also, SunRay Park has cancelled the SunRay Park and Casino Farewell Claiming Stakes and has cut the purses of most of its remaining stakes races by $10,000.
