After 30 years of racing quarter horses, Melvin Neugebauer is hoping to finally reach his goal in the $3 million All-American Futurity on Labor Day at the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack and Casino in Mew Mexico.

Neugebauer, a Colorado native, has qualified for the All-American two times prior, but this time is special.

Neugebauer picked Uptown Dynasty at the Heritage Place out of Oklahoma City last September as a yearling. To date, the two-year-old Uptown Dynasty has made almost $500,000, which was won at a Grade 1 Futurity and is now headed for the All-American Futurity as the anticipated morning line favorite.

If that wasn't exciting enough, Neugebauer is also a partner on the fastest qualifier, Bigg Daddy.

The two-year-old New Mexico bred has made just less than $200,000 and just won the Zia Futurity.

The race will be televised on RIDE TV and bets can even be placed at Southern Colorado Gaming and Events Center (previously known as Pueblo Greyhound Park).
