Off to the Races

Saturday, Jun 25: Grand Opening

An old Albuquerque standard for betting, horses and fun just got a facelift—that's right, The Downs has an all-new Grandstand and will now host night races. Because, let's be honest, summer nights are the absolute best in New Mexico. Updates include a huge Jumbotron for up close views of the races, an outdoor amphitheater and more. The grand opening will be on Saturday, June 25, with a follow-up party on Sunday, June 26, following the final 6pm race featuring a free concert for all ages by Rick Trevino. Though children are welcome to see the fastest horses in Burque, you must be 18+ to bet—please do so responsibly. Who knows? You may get to see the next Secretariat before he becomes famous!
