  • Was just there for the Cowboy Poetry and the entire experience was great. The staff was helpful in directing which way to go, the event was fun and a good time was had by all. 
  • This is the first time we went to a horse race and it was fun. We did some betting and enjoyed it. Would recommend this to anyone else. 
  • As always great experience. Crowds are always friendly. Nice weather, Zia Days fun time to go, TB races and lots of vendors adds to the fun!

  • We have Santa Anita and Del Mar within easy driving distance and go often. I have been to several others but Ruidoso Downs is truly one of the worst. Free parking with shuttle to entrance. Free general admission with bench seats next to track, all in the sun. Counter seats are $15 for simply a counter surface and a chair at the same level as general admission. Table for 4 is $50 with just a table and 4 chairs behind the counter seats and up about two feet. Box for 4 is $45, similar to table, same area. And the Turf Club entry fee is $20 each. It was $1 hot dog day but they were out of hot dogs just 10 minutes after the first race. The entire place was dirty. We took a few pictures and departed. Not recommended.
  • Small casino, mainly nice to see the horse races. Restaurant is decent. Employees are very friendly. One of the cleanest restrooms I've ever been to.
  • This isn't a family friendly place for tourists. From the moment we walked in, the older people at the front just stared at us when we walked up and said hi. We asked for a program and they just grunted at us. When I went to the ticket/cashier's area I asked if any cashiers were open and the lady behind the counter just said "no." and walked away from me mumbling. We just left. Unless you're a white country type or a local I wouldn't bother.
  • Love this Casino, everyone is super nice and helpful. The slots are pertty loose and you have fun playing.
  • What fun! The staff was efficient and Courteous. Clean environment.
