All American Derby
All American Derby (G1)
The All American Derby (G1) is run every Labor Day weekend at Ruidoso Downs in the mountain village of Ruidoso, New Mexico.
Run over 440 yards on the day preceding Labor Day, the All American Derby offers the winner more than just the lion’s share of the large purse, which has reached as high as $2.8 million. It also awards the winner with an invitation to the Grade 1 Champion of Champions at Los Alamitos Race Course in Southern California.
The All American Derby is the third and final leg of the Quarter Horse Derby Triple Crown. If a horse wins the three races (Ruidoso Derby, Rainbow Derby and All American Derby), its connections will receive a $1 million bonus.
