2015 Ruidoso Triple Crown Supplement Due June 15

Amanda Greer

            RUIDOSO DOWNS, New Mexico (June 15, 2014) – The final opportunity to supplement a foal of 2013 to all three 2015 Grade 1 futurities – the $750,000 Ruidoso Futurity, the $1 million Rainbow Futurity and the $2.7 million All American Futurity – with a single payment is by June 15.

            That supplemental payment of $2,200 also makes those supplemental nominees eligible to the 2016 runnings of the three Grade 1 derbies: Ruidoso Derby, Rainbow Derby and All American Derby. This year’s Ruidoso Derby has a record $943,127 purse while currently the 2014 Rainbow Derby projects to have a $1 million purse and the 2014 All American Derby looks like it will reach the $2 million level.

            The 2015 All American Futurity offers the largest purse in the iconic race’s history. The 2015 purses for the Rainbow Futurity and the Ruidoso Futurity equal all-time records.

            The nomination deadline for the newly revamped Grade 1, $200,000 All American Gold Cup approaches on July 1. The winner of the 440-yard stakes on August 30 receives an invitation to the Grade 1, $750,000 Champion of Champions in December at Los Alamitos. The July 1 nomination fee is $2,000.
