Live Racing In New Mexico Scheduled To Resume On April 23 At SunRay Park

On Feb. 25, 2021, it was announced that restrictions regarding gaming in the state of New Mexico would be loosened. The news was emphatically embraced by the New Mexico horse racing industry as purse accounts will now experience an influx of funding not seen since March 16, 2020.

Newly named Chairman of the New Mexico Racing Commission, Sam Bregman, said: “We are very excited to get live horse racing going again in the state of New Mexico. We look forward to getting the industry back on track starting with the April 23, 2021 opening day at SunRay Park in Farmington, NM.”

The New Mexico Racing Commission intends to make decisions regarding the SunRay Park purse schedule, condition book, post times, racing officials, and wagering format at the upcoming March 18, 2021 regularly scheduled monthly meeting.

At its Feb. 18 meeting, the NMRC officially cancelled the 2020-2021 race meet at Sunland Park just outside El Paso, NM, which never began as scheduled on Dec. 26 because of COVID-19 restrictions in the state.

Ruidoso Downs, The Downs at Albuquerque, and Zia Park all have dates on the calendar for 2021 as well.
