Pojoaque Pueblo considers use for old racetrack


Filed Under: Openings and Closings
   
After being denied a New Mexico gaming license, Pojoaque Pueblo will debate what to do with a former racetrack.

The tribe wanted to operate slot machines at the Downs at Santa Fe. But the state Racing Commission rejected the tribe's application.

Gov. George Rivera says the tribe hasn't decided what to do with the 328-acre property. "I think it's just time for us to sit back and be patient," Rivera told The Santa Fe New Mexican.

The property is not held in trust.
