The New Mexico Racing Commission during its Aug. 25 meeting in Albuquerque declined to take action on Coronado Partners’ application for a horse-racing license, but there was no urgency to do so because both sides recently agreed to an extension on the decision.

Warren Frost, a Logan-based lawyer for Coronado and one of its principals, said his investor group and the racing commission mutually agreed on an extension for a decision on the application.

The deadline for the commission to act now is Nov. 2, Frost said.

The latest the commission could act on the application and not violate a court’s order is during its regular meeting on Oct. 20, barring a special meeting after that date.
