Mine That Bird is coming back to New
Mexico.

The Kentucky Derby winner will lead the post parade for the $2
million All American Futurity on Sept. 7 at Ruidoso Downs.

Co-owner Mark Allen of Roswell said it's a way to express thanks
to the New Mexico racing community for support. He said fans
"deserve to see" the 3-year-old gelding who won the Derby as a
50-1 long shot.

Mine That Bird is scheduled to run the $750,000 West Virginia
Derby on Aug. 1 and then the $1 million Travers Stakes at Saratoga
on Aug. 29.

After that, he will be at Ruidoso Downs, followed by a viewing
at Allen's Double Eagle Ranch. Then it's off to Santa Anita to
prepare for the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 7.
