Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

The Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame, part of the All American Ruidoso Downs Foundation offers a superb collection of racing memorabilia and racing history lives throughout the collection. For horse racing buffs, it is a must-see stop while in Ruidoso. Plus, non-racing folks who appreciate history are amazed. Everyone enjoys the interactive kiosks that present some of the greatest races and stories in racing history as well as information on each of the members of the hall of fame.

The Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame inductees are people and horses who have had a profound impact on their sport. Every year only one owner/breeder, one trainer, one jockey and one horse are enshrined. It is a very select group, indeed. The Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame is located on the second floor at Ruidoso Downs and located near the entrance of the All American Turf Club. Please visit. Admission is free.
