This weekend is a massive one in the Quarter Horse world, as Ruidoso Downs host a pair of prestigious Grade 1 races. To help you handicap and bet the cards, Jeremy Plonk and the Horse Player NOW team have created a Wager Guide to introduce you to the key players and give their picks for the top races Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday's card is headlined by the Grade 1, $1.3M All American Derby, which attracted a full field of ten. The card also features the $200K All American Gold Cup and the $100K First Down Dash. First post at Ruidoso is 2:30PM ET.
And the action really heats up on Monday with the most prestigious race in the sport, the Grade 1, $3M All American Futurity. Ten horses will compete in the Futurity, including the undefeated Hawkeye (7/2). The card also includes the $200K All American Juvenile and the $135K Rio Grande Senor Thoroughbred Futurity. First post on Monday is 3PM ET.
