Ruidoso Downs will feature Pink Day at the races this weekend.

Saturday’s Pink Day at the Races is an effort to help raise funds for Altrusa of Ruidoso for breast cancer detection, treatment, and awareness.

Anyone that wears pink to the track on Saturday, August 10th will receive a free pink backpack, and there will be games, prizes, giveaways, drawings, and a silent auction.

The unbeaten Winter Book leads the three-year-old fillies competing over six furlongs in the $50,000 Aspen Cup on Saturday.

The races will also feature female horses with a full field of 12 female three-year-old thoroughbreds.

Racing runs on a Friday through Monday schedule at Ruidoso Downs with a 1 p.m. first post time. General admission and parking are free.
