ABOUT US

Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino is New Mexico’s premier gaming destination, featuring a state of the art horse track, sensational casino floor, incredible restaurants, live entertainment and much more.  We welcome you to visit our facilities to win big, eat great and enjoy amazing live music accompanied by superior customer service.

OUR HISTORY

Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino opened its doors in 1959 as just a racetrack. In the 90’s, horse racing around the nation was a declining industry, so New Mexico designed legislation allowing racetracks to incorporate slot machines into their business as an effort to save New Mexico horse racing. Twenty six percent of Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino’s revenue goes to taxes, which in turn go to New Mexico’s general fund. An additional twenty percent of revenue goes towards the horseman’s account. All monies in the horseman’s account contributes to horse racing purses at Sunland Park and has had a profound effect on the quality of our live race meet.

WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT SUNLAND PARK RACETRACK & CASINO?

When Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino received its gaming license in 1999, some provisions between the Native American casinos and New Mexico horse tracks were agreed upon. The agreement includes: alcohol may not be served in the casino; the casino can only be opened 112 hours per week; no comps can be handed out in the casino; state-imposed maximum number of slot machines allowed; simulcast horse races must be shown everyday; and we must race a minimum of 4 days a week during live season.

HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO GAMBLE?

New Mexico law requires patrons to be 21 years of age or older to enter the Casino. However, you only have to be 18 years or older to wager on horse racing.

DO WE HAVE TABLE GAMES?

Our current license with the state does not allow the operation of any other types of gaming other than slot machines and pari-mutuel betting. We do have two state-of-the-art Table Master Games offering Blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, and Roulette with five individual player stations and a variety of dealers on a high quality plasma display.

WILL YOU EVER HAVE CARD GAMES?

At this time, it is not legal for us to operate card games and that may only change if the law changes.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WORK AT SUNLAND PARK RACETRACK & CASINO?

During our live racing season we employ 600 people and 500 during our non-live season. Prior to the opening of the casino, our staff consisted of a total of only 90 employees.
