Tucumcari may make another bet on racetrack

Tucumcari, N.M., is betting that another horse-racing license will come open in the next two years and has decided to keep its option on purchasing land between Interstate 40 and Route 66, reports the Quay County Sun.

Tucumcari lobbied hard last year to get the racetrack, but the state awarded the license to Raton, N.M.
