As you all may very well have heard, the AQHA’s new software that is utilized to create foal registration certificates is not working very efficiently. They are in crisis mode and are working with the NMRC, horsemen, and track racing offices to keep QH racing going. The AQHA is taking in about 3,000 calls per day and customer service is having difficulties keeping up with the volume. All that being said, I wanted to share the point of contact for New Mexico horsemen that plan on racing at Ruidoso Downs. Her name is Jamie Zamora. She is working closely with the AQHA. At this point I understand that she will merely be able to verify that horses have foal certificates being processed at the AQHA and she can obtain information to identify a horse adequately. In time, she may be capable of printing the certificates at the track. I am unclear if there will be fees associated with that service. The AQHA is in the process of putting a formal release out in the near future. We will do our best to keep you informed of any significant changes.
THE MAIN NUMBER AT THE RUIDOSO RACING OFFICE WHERE JAMIE MAY BE REACHED IS 575 378 7223.
