Sunland Park racetrack & casino History

Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino opened its doors in 1959 as just a racetrack. In the 1990s, 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.

Contributions to State taxes

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 20% of revenue goes toward the horseman’s account. All monies in the horseman’s account contribute to horse racing purses at Sunland Park, which has had a profound effect on the quality of our live race meets.

What is the legal age to gamble at sunland park racetrack & casino?

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.
