NM Racing Commission Updates
At the NMHA we believe all horsemen should be involved and informed on how we are working to improve. Here are updates from our meetings with the NM Racing Commission to keep you informed about what we are working on.
Letter: NMHA to NMRC
September 25, 2020
November 21, 2019
The NMHA requested a delay in release of the Sunray condition book to discuss the following changes with Sunray: releasing two conditions books instead of one, changes to the payouts/chart results, and changes to the purse structure. The NMHA was denied this request and approved the current condition book.
The Albuquerque Downs wished to move the date of the 2020 La Fiesta Derby and Futurity Nomination Blanks. The NMHA believes the proposed date would be too close to the All American Futurity and the annual Ruidoso Sell. The NM Racing Commission sided with the Albuquerque Downs. The new dates will be posted shortly.
