The racing was fun to watch. The lunch inside the casino featured the absolute worst barbque sandwich I have ever eaten.

It was our first time at any horse race and we got help from a number of people who were very friendly and helpful! After cashing out at the casino for a whopping $8.43, the banker humorously asked, "Do you need an escort?". haha!

nothing better for us then sitting at a counter seat (we like them better then box!) and smelling the fresh pines and cool breezes while betting on horses. Love it.

visited the casino, horses not racing yet. Played the slots for a while. Pretty location! Should stop by if you are passing thru.

Love the Downs for a day of racing! Nice facilities, friendly staff, great food! Summertime in Ruidoso mountains is cool, perfect weather. Some weekends are extremely busy. Check online or call ahead for schedules. Let's go to the races!
