The excitement could be felt in the air as the shuttles ran nonstop taking racing fans to and from the track for a big day of racing at Ruidoso Downs. They came in great numbers on this All American Derby Day!
The Racetrack administration had to close the entrance gates because attendance exploded to absolute full capacity!

The All American Derby-G1 and the All American Oaks-G1 were on the program for Sunday’s racing. Both races were won by the horse wearing the #6 saddle towel. A Pollitical Candy V won the $808,538All American Derby-G1 and Political Rose won the All American Oaks-G1.
Speedhorse and the Jockeys’ Guild honored Cody Rodger Smith with the Sam Thompson Memorial Jockey award for 2022 just after the 5th race.
