Ruidoso: Countdown to All American Futurity


The countdown to the Grade 1, $2.4 million All American Futurity for Quarter Horses is underway at Ruidoso Downs. The track has three stakes on the program, and the first of them, the $75,000 All American Juvenile, goes in about five minutes. It will be followed by the Ruidoso Downs Thoroughbred Championship, then the All American Futurity. 

The All American will be the richest race ever run for Quarter Horses when it is decided on what is the final card of the Ruidoso meet Monday. The fastest qualifier is the Sleepy Gilbreath-trained Ochoa, who will break from post 9.
