These horses show true grit and determination racing down the 440-yard track. The Derby horses might be older but their speed has not slowed them down. Read more about your favorite qualifier below.

What a miracle it was for Sue May’s family to find this amazing horse. Sue May’s family has been racing horses for many years, and she fell in love with Rusty’s Miracle pedigree. This horse could add to the May family legacy if he were to win the All American Derby. The family won their first Ruidoso race in 1963. Rusty’s Miracle qualified as the tenth fastest horse with a 21.516. We are excited to watch how jockey Noe Garcia Jr. and Rusty’s Miracle do in the final race.
Tools In The Sky
This horse sure has the tools to qualify himself for the All American Derby race on September 1, 2019. A potential chance to win a $1.5 million prize. Tools In The Sky shows up when it is least expected. This is a horse who competed in the 2010 All American Futurity at a younger age. He has matured since then picking up his momentum to become the fifth-fastest qualifier in the trials with a 21.361. Hopefully, Tools In The Sky and his jockey Ricky Ramirez will have the necessary tools to win the All American Derby.

Having a seventh-month break with no prior training proves this horse could surprise us in the All American Derby. Watch to see if Jess Macho Corona and his jockey Raul Ramirez Jr., come back strong and fast to earn a victory!
