Everybody knows what Sunland means to me, I’ve been coming here since I was 14 years old. I won my first $100,000 Stakes Race here, so I have great memories of Sunland Park.

Bob Baffert, Trainer, National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame

It was a great day for New Mexico racing. If you want to see how live racing should be run, then you should be at the Sunland Derby. What a great program and a great crowd. So professionally done. We were so pleased.

Dr. Leonard Blach, DVM, NM State Racing Commissioner

The strong Sunland Park handle figures indicate the betting public loves to wager on a strong high quality product in New Mexico.
