The excitement could be felt in the air as the shuttles ran nonstop taking race enthusiasts to and from the track for a big day of racing at Ruidoso Downs.

The All American Derby and the All American Oaks were on the program for Sunday’s racing.  The favorites came up short in both races as Instygator took first in the Derby and Empressum, who was a contender for the Derby Triple Crown, did not finish on the board.  Apollitical Daizies won the Oaks with Whistle Stop Café coming in second.
Speedhorse and the Jockeys’ Guild honored Jimmy Dean Brooks with the Sam Thompson Memorial Jockey award for 2021 just after the 5th race.  Speedhorse also donated the proceeds from the coloring book project, in the amount of $4,000, to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys’ Fund after the Sam Thompson presentation.
The weather was cool and dry for both the races and the sale, making it a truly enjoyable day on The Mountain. 

After the races, people hurried over to the sale pavilion for the final day of the Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale where the highest seller sold for $450,000.  Day 3 sales figures remained high with an average price of $65,559 and the median was $52,000.  Total gross sales for the entire Select Sale brought in $25,729,000.
