The New Mexico Horsemen’s Association is holding a racing summit at Ruidoso Downs with industry stakeholders on Saturday, July 24, at the racetrack chapel from 9:30-11:30 a.m. MT. All interested parties, including horseplayers and racing fans, are welcome to attend.  A question and answer period will be conducted after the presentations.

A variety of speakers have been scheduled, including opening remarks on “The Importance of Horseracing to the New Mexico Economy” from state Rep. Candy Spence Ezzell. Gary C. Mitchell, P.C., attorney for the horsemen’s association, will give a legal update, and a history of the NMHA will be reviewed by NMHA president Roy Manfredi and NMHA board member Larry Strain (both horse owners).

Benevolent functions of the NMHA will be outlined by Terri Montoya, NMHA administrative assistant. Montoya will also discuss “purse funds vs. owner funds” with trainer Lynette Baldwin, a horse trainer and NMHA member.

For any question, contact NMHA executive director Richard Erhard at [email protected]
