Sunland Park History

Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino opened its doors in 1959 as just a racetrack. In the 1990's, horse racing was in decline, so New Mexico allowed slot machines on racetracks to save the state's horse racing industry. Twenty six percent of casino revenue goes to taxes and additional twenty percent goes towards the horseman's account. All monies in the horseman's account contributes to horse racing purses at Sunland Park.

Notable races include the $200,000 WinStar Sunland Park Oaks 1-1/16 miles for fillies; the $150,000 Harry W. Henson Breeders' Cup Handicap for fillies and mares at one mile; the $150,000 Riley Allison Futurity, 6-1/2 furlongs for 2-year-olds; the $100,000 Borderland Derby, a 1 1/16-mile prep for the WinStar; and the $100,000 Sunland Park Handicap for 3-year-olds and up at 1-1/8 miles. For quarter horses, Sunland's top race is the $400,000 Grade 1 Championship, run late each December at 440 yards. The $300,000 Grade New Mexican Spring Futurity at 300 yards is run in April.
