Ruidoso horse racing at the Ruidoso Downs Race Track has been a staple in the community since 1947! Spectacular summer races take place Thursdays through Sundays, from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day. The track is Thursday through Sunday for race lovers to place bets on live ponies, as well as simulcast betting across New Mexico and beyond. Post time is generally 1pm, but call ahead as this can sometimes change, particularly on big race days.
Ruidoso Downs is also host to an exceptional summer concert series, great dining at Billy’s Sports Bar and Grill, and the Billy The Kid Casino, featuring more than 300 slot machines and virtual video blackjack. Billy the Kid Casino opens daily at 10:00am and stays open until 12:00am Sunday-Thursday and 1:00am on Friday and Saturday.
