In Ruidoso, Kj Desparado overtook Fdd Scout at the wire to win the $3 million All American Futurity quarter horse classic on Monday at Ruidoso Downs.

Kj Desparado covered the 440-yard distance in 21.25 seconds, ending Jess Savin Candy’s bid for a sweep of Ruidoso Downs’ quarter horse Triple Crown.

Jess Savin Candy finished fourth, behind Kj Desparado, Fdd Scout and Sippin Hayden.
