Sunland Park History

Its 15 million dollar expansion has made room for over 700 state-of-the-art slot machines. The stakes are high when the horses run every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from mid-November to mid-April. The excitement grows every racing season with bigger purses and world-class thoroughbred and quarter horses. Year-round simulcast wagering from tracks all over the world will keep you in the middle of action. Monitors located in our Simulcast lounge and throughout the grandstand and Turf Club areas guarantee you’ll never miss a quick start or a photo finish.

The newest and brightest star is Ventanas Las Vegas-style buffet. Delectable entree selections will have you filling your plate, and coming back for more. The Signature showroom and the Mount Cristo Rey room are the ultimate places to stage events. The Signature Showroom also hosts concerts every month by some of the biggest names in show business. Founded in 1959, Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino was a gateway to the East and West for premier racing talent. Its daily average purse distribution was around $35,000 in the early 1990's. Powered by over 700 slot machines, this figure has gone up to $250,000. The wagering record of Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino reached a staggering $1,701,961 on Tuesday, February 18, 2003.
