AMRA will pay to member/owner at the end of the racing year an amount per start that will be determined by the Board of Diretors. Funding will be from the General Fund and will be in the approximate amount of $20,000!! This financial incentive is designed to encourage new owners and retain current owners and to help in the reduction of costs incurred as a result of the ever-increasing Workers' Compensation charges.

By Don Jacklin: President, American Mule Racing Association


Senorita, the 2013 3-Year Old World Champion moved rapidly forward in 2015, becoming the New Open World Champion Racing Mule.
The challenge required superior performances throughout the race year against former World Champions BJF Red Ticket and BJF Hot Ticket, with a culminating and convincing win in the Fresno AMRA Gold Cup.

Owned by Gayle Stegmann and Dave Wood, ridden by Jockey Joe Crispin and trained by Ruby Thomas, Senorita exploded out of the Fresno gate on October 17, increasing her lead in the 440 yard race, and winning by 4 lengths. Fresno racing crowds are the largest on the California Fair Racing circuit with attendance soaring from 5,000 to 10,000.

All 3 World Champions will again be competing against each other in 2016, along with the new 2015 3 Year Old World Champion, “Shu Fly”.
