ABOUT THE ALL AMERICAN

The All American Futurity (G1) is racing’s richest race for 2-year-olds, regardless of breed. Run every Labor Day at Ruidoso Downs in the mountain village of Ruidoso, New Mexico, the $3 million race will be contested by 2-year-old American Quarter Horses at the classic distance of 440 yards (one quarter mile). 

The All American Futurity was first run in 1959, with a purse of $129,686. It was won by Hugh Huntley’s filly Galobar, who was trained by Newt Keck and ridden by Cliff Lambert. In 1978, the All American became the first horse race in history to offer a million dollar purse and was won by Moon Lark. In 1982, the race’s purse was upped to a $2 million, with $1 million going to winner Mr Master Bug.
