Ruidoso Downs Race Track

Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Billy the Kid Casino is a unique mix of old and new. Starting in the 1930s in Mr. Miller’s cornfields, racing in the Ruidoso Downs has had a long tradition of firsts and record breaking.  It is the only horse track in the United States and Europe that has a separate quarter horse straightaway and oval thoroughbred tracks giving our spectators a unique venue.  Nestled in the cool pines of Lincoln County, the track offers world class racing in a down home environment. During the live racing season spectators are treated to 9-13 races most Fridays thru Mondays.
