    About Ruidoso Downs Racetrack

    Ruidoso Downs is more than just a racetrack – it’s an entire city. Incorporated in 1947, Ruidoso Downs is a suburb of Ruidoso, a gorgeous resort town in the Sierra Blanca mountains of New Mexico. People flock here for the skiing and to see the horses at Ruidoso Downs Race Track.

    Not coincidentally, 1947 was also the year that pari-mutuel wagering was legalized in New Mexico. Tourists and local residents had already been gambling on match races held on a makeshift straightaway built on a cornfield; this became the first Ruidoso Downs track, known at the time as Hollywood Park.

    Further developments would bring Ruidoso Downs up to scratch. A grandstand and a five-furlong dirt oval were built in 1949, and in 1953, Gene Hensley took over operations and gave the facility its current name. Hensley would also spearhead the first running of the All American Futurity in 1959. This was the richest Quarter Horse race in America, with an initial purse of $129,000, and it remains the country’s richest race with $2.4 million on the line in 2012.

    In 1986, Ruidoso Downs Race Track (now owned by R.D. Hubbard) extended the dirt oval to seven furlongs with a separate chute for Quarter Horses. Thoroughbreds also run here from Memorial Day to Labor Day; there are no graded stakes for the thoroughbreds, but Ruidoso Downs does host over a dozen non-graded stakes, including the Rio Grande Senor Futurity and the Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (both at 5.5 furlongs) for 2-year-olds.
