Black Ruby, muledom's star of stars, will make her first appearance ever at Del Mar for a match race Sunday, Sept. 8, with arch-rival Taz for a purse of $10,000.
Black Ruby, who has become a cult heroine as she stacks up win after win at various California fair meets, has a record of 46 victories in 52 races. Her fame has expanded beyond the boundaries of California through being featured in Sports Illustrated.
The race will be at 400 yards and will be the final event on that Sunday card. It will be a non-betting exhibition, and the purse distribution has not been established yet.
