Ruidoso disputes All American Futurity charge
The management of Ruidoso Downs is disputing allegations that horses were intentionally held at the start of the 2010 All American Futurity which was won by Mr Piloto.
“We have looked at the video tape of the 2010 All American Futurity from every angle many times in recent days and can see no evidence of any horse being held or denied a fair start,” said track general manager Shaun Hubbard.
The charges come from an FBI affidavit charging money laundering by members of the notorious Los Zetas drug cartel through Quarter Horse racing. Tremor Enterprises, the owner of Mr Piloto, is alleged to be one of many front organizations used by Los Zetas in the United States.
