The Ruidoso Downs Race Track is gearing up for the racing season. Racing fans might be surprised at what they see when the horses hit the gates next month. Renovations that began last year are now complete.
“This year we focused on the fan experience. So, the things that are going to be more visible this year in terms of our renovations are our new turf club,” said Jeff True, the president and general manager of Ruidoso Downs Race Track.
The 700-seat club overlooking the race rack is empty now, but that will soon change with the simulcast of the 145th Kentucky Derby next weekend. True believes there’s much in store for the fans who show up for live horse racing in two weeks.
