April 23, 2014
Stallionesearch.com is proud to announce the inclusion on the website of all of the known-existing All American Futurity videos given to us courtesy of Ruidoso Downs.
In the video section of Stallionesearch.com there is now a tab labeled “All American Futurity” that allows Stallionesearch viewers to take a march through Quarter Horse racing history, and view all of the known existing All American Futurity videos. Over the years, some of the All American Futurity videos have been either misplaced or lost from the archives. According to the leading All American Futurity historians, the videos of nine All American Futurities are not known to exist. Those years are: 1960 (Tonto Bars Hank), 1963 (Goetta), 1964 (Decketta), 1965 (Savannah Jr), 1967 (Laico Bird), 1969 (Easy Jet), 1970 (Rocket Wrangler), 1971 (Mr Kid Charge), 1972 (Possumjet).
“We are so pleased to have the All American Futurities be available on Stallioneseach.com,” said Ruidoso Downs Media Director Ty Wyant. “We feel it is great for the sport, and that it gives Quarter Horse racing fans the opportunity to take a stroll through the history of this most prestigious race.”
The All American Futurity began in 1959, and continues to be not only the marquee event of all of Quarter Horse racing, but most certainly the signature event of the Ruidoso racing calendar each Labor Day. The race, which initially carried a purse of $129,686 in 1959, has a purse in 2014 of $2.6 million. Ruidoso Downs begins their 2014 racing meet on May 22nd.
