Racing Commision 6/27/2013

The commission meeting went well today.  Joe Dee and Eric represented us well.  After going into executive session the Commission gave SunRay Park 39 days.  The Downs has agreed to pay $25,000 to SunRay Park for the horsemen who are there to stay until The Downs barn area opens.  The Downs will run 54 days but we will watch the handle from the casino and we can readdress the days.  Zia will have the same number of days as this year which is 56.  Ruidoso is 60 days and Sunland is 76 days.

 
The Commission did approve the increase in the trial purses at Ruidoso to $6000.
 
The clenbuterol suspencion is still in place until the RCI comes up with a policy that the commission will adopt.

The commission agendas will now be out 72 hours before their meetings.  If you want to be placed on the agenda you will need to notify them before that. 
 
If you have any questions please call
