RUIDOSO DOWNS, N.M. (AP) – The remains of three-time world champion Go Man Go and the horse’s grave monument have been moved to Ruidoso Downs.
Go Man Go died in 1983 and the remains had been at the former Buena Suerte Ranch in Roswell.
Officials at Ruidoso Downs say the horse’s remains were recently cremated and moved to the racetrack Tuesday.
The majority of Go Man Go’s ashes will be buried near the grave monument in the track infield winner’s circle with the rest put in Ruidoso Downs’ Racehorse Hall of Fame.
One of the dominant in quarter horse racing history, Go Man Go was world champion from 1955-57.
The horse was the first 2-year-old to be named world champion and won 17 stakes races plus set world records at 350 and 440 yards.
