Racetrack changes live racing schedule for Super Bowl Sunday
SUNLAND PARK, N.M. — With the Super Bowl being one of the most watched live events in the country, Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino Shuffled around their live racing schedule for Sunday.
The racetrack normally runs multiple races Sunday, but decided to give sports fans in the area the opportunity to watch the game on the big screen.
"Since the Super Bowl is the dominant deal on Sunday we changed our racing to Thursday just for this event," said Sunland Park Racetrack Operations Manager Robert Martinez.
The racetrack offered food and drink specials and stayed open after the game.
The racing schedule goes back to normal next week.
