Tucumcari "Racino" Meeting

About 1,200 people turned out in Tucumcari for a State Racing Commission hearing on a proposed race track and casino.

Promoters say the so-called "Racino" would bring $60 million a year to the area and generate 300 full-time jobs.

The main investor, Don Chalmers of Albuquerque says 75 percent of the "Racino" money would come from Texas.

Raton and Santa Fe are also interested in New Mexico's final license for a horse race track.
