CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A Las Vegas casino executive is proposing a new racetrack and casino in eastern New Mexico with a "moving grandstand" that will allow an audience to travel alongside running horses.
Daniel Lee, president and CEO of the Nevada-based Full House Resorts, is vying for New Mexico's sixth racetrack/casino license and hopes his $200 million resort and racetrack with the shifting grandstand will set him apart.
Full House Resorts says the moving grandstand would travel at the same speed as the racehorses, circling the track.
The proposed "La Posada del Llano" includes a racetrack, casino, luxury hotel, 18-hole golf course, water park, and other amenities near the New Mexico-Texas border in Clovis, New Mexico.
It's one of five groups in intense competition to win the New Mexico racetrack/casino license.
