Training races for 2-year-old Quarter Horses will return May 7-9 at Ruidoso Downs after a very successful debut last year.

The 300-yard training races begin each morning at 8:30 a.m. and post times will be 18 minutes apart.

There will be a maximum of six horses in each race and horses must be saddled before coming to the saddling paddock.

The entry deadline for training races is 11 a.m. on May 3 in the racing office. There is a $50 entry fee due at time of entry for each horse (check or cash only).

A welcome barbeque for horsemen will be held at the chapel following the training races on May 9.

The training races precede the trials to the $600,000 Ruidoso Futurity (G1) on opening day, May 25.
