Racino Update

Tucumcari, NM -  A new deadline is giving some people in Tucumcari renewed hope of building a race track casino.

A license for the "Racino" was given to Raton and not Tucumcari back in 2008.

But delays in construction have caused the New Mexico Gaming Control Board to set a May first deadline for Raton's casino portion to be up and running.

Officials in Tucumcari say they plan to re-apply for the license immediately if Raton loses theirs in five days.
