The Downs at Albuquerque History

1997

 

The New Mexico State Fair Futurity was dedicated with a special marker at The Downs in September. The New Mexico State Fair Futurity is the oldest continuously run American Quarter Horse stakes race. This contest between New Mexico-bred American Quarter Horses has been run at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds track since 1946. It was split into divisions and renamed the New Mexico State Fair Señor Futurity and the Señorita Futurity in 1991.

 

 

 

2003

 

Early in the year, the Fair Commission scrapped a plan to put the operation of the Downs at Albuquerque out to competitive bid. Later that year, the state governor vetoed language in a bill that would have allowed the Fair Commission to enter into a lease for up to 25 years with the operator of the Downs.
