What's Next For All American Champion "KJ"?

John and Kathy Lee, co-owners of All American Futurity champion KJ Despardo, were on their way home to their ranch in Chandler, Arizona today. That’s a long-enough drive to think about what happened this summer at the races and also time to talk about the immediate and long-term future for their new racing star. © Jake Rogers/Ruidoso Downs

A Streak Of Lightning

Quarter Horse racing has changed a great deal over the years. Nowadays the race tracks have starting gates for the horses to start from, the horses are handicapped by adding weight to those horses whose records indicate that they are much faster than others in the same race. The race tracks are made to be smooth, level and soft to prevent injury to the horses hooves and legs. And probably the biggest change of all is the spectator facilities.
