SANTA FE RACECOURSE

The New Mexico racetrack of Santa Fe first hosted racing in 1971, offering both thoroughbred and quarter-horse races. It was a one mile oval track which held its inaugural meeting in June 1971 when over 11,000 people attended.

The track was a splendid affair, but cost a great deal of money, muck of its borrowed, to build. As a consequence, when crowd sizes decreased the track started running at a loss and the racing administrators filed for bankruptcy in December 1975.
