Ruidoso Downs, in partnership with Racing Free, will host a special "Let Freedom Ring - Racing Free Day" at the race track on July 6.

There will be special events and fundraisers to promote leveling the playing field of racing.

"We want to create a day that not only spotlights those that are currently supporting Racing Free, but gives others the opportunity to sign up and learn more about our mission to secure a positive future for racing," states Danielle Bryan, Racing Free's director of marketing.

Racing Free encourages all horsemen to attend, sign up and reap the rewards of what the organization has to offer. For a $300 membership fee, any time a member horse wins any race and receives a clear drug test, the owner of the horse will be rewarded $1,500. There are also opportunities available for breeders, trainers, industry organizations and race enthusiasts to get involved with corporate sponsorships and the Racing Free Breeder Incentive Program.

Racing Free is challenging the industry to enroll more than 200 member horses during July. As an incentive, every owner who enrolls a horse during the month will be entered to win a Racing Free membership at any track for no enrollment fee.

“We have big plans for Racing Free and the role it will play in the sport of horse racing” said Micah McKinney, co-founder. "Our focuses are on expanding memberships and involvement to all breeds and all racing organizations across the United States. Key players need to join so that we can fight the drug-front together.”
