Full House Resorts, a Las Vegas-based company, has submitted the proposal for a new casino to the New Mexico Racing Commission. The resort, titled La Posada del Llano, will be a destination resort that will have a racetrack, casino, luxury hotel, 18-hole golf course, water park, and other amenities on the plains of eastern New Mexico.
The company currently have five casinos throughout the USA.
“We believe that eastern New Mexico has tremendous potential to attract visitors from throughout the area, including from nearby Amarillo, Lubbock, and other parts of western Texas,” noted Daniel R Lee, president and CEO of Full House Resorts. “We are proposing to build an entire regional destination resort, entailing much more than just a racetrack and casino. Such a development will produce more jobs, more development, greater tax revenues, and larger horseracing purses, while also becoming a major attraction and amenity for the region.”
“In a typical race, spectators in the grandstand only see two brief moments of a race – its start and the closing seconds at the finish line. Our Moving Grandstand changes that, allowing spectators to race side-by-side with the horses for every dramatic second of the race. By reinventing the viewing experience, we intend to open horse racing to a new generation of fans.”
