Albuquerque Downs racing season is in full swing!
I was fortunate enough a few weeks ago to be able to attend the opening evening of horse racing at Albuquerque Downs. There were lots of exciting races, both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse, and a good-sized crowd to share the excitement. And racing has become even more exciting since last year, when the Downs was completely remodeled, and added lighting to allow "racing under the stars."
If you weren't able to be there for the season's opening, don't despair! The racing season at the Downs continues untile September 24th, with night racing on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays beginning at 6:05 pm, and afternoon racing on Sundays at 1:30, except during State Fair. During the Fair, first post is 1:30 September 8017, and 6:05 on September 9 & 10, September 12-17, and September 7, 8 and 11 is at 6:05 pm.
Come on out and check it all out!
