Prescott Valley, Ariz. – No horse has won as many races this year as Six Ninety One and on Wednesday, the nine-year-old thoroughbred returns to race at Arizona Downs.

Gates open at 9am, with the first race beginning at 2:30 p.m. Six Ninety One is scheduled to run Wednesday in Race 5, drawing post position five in a field of seven horses.

Six Ninety One has drawn national attention not just for being the winningest horse in North America, but for how dominantly those wins have come this season. The gelding is on track to shatter the record for total victories in a season.

“We are excited to welcome Six Ninety One back to Arizona Downs,” said General Manager Mike Weiss. “There’s nothing quite like the excitement of a day at the races and when you have a horse doing something as special as what Six Ninety One is doing, it’s even more exciting.”

Six Ninety One last raced at Arizona Downs on June 22, notching a 10th victory in just 12 starts, nearly twice as many as the next-closest horse.

After just six months, that’s more wins than the winningest thoroughbred in all of 2020 or 2019. Last year, four horses reached eight wins, while in 2019, the year-long record was nine wins. In the last 10 years, the most wins by any horse was 12.

Six Ninety One was bred in Kentucky by Edwin and Melissa Anthony and is owned by trainer Alfred Asprino and Jesus Vielma. Jockey Karlo Lopez has guided the horse to all of those wins.

Racing begins at 2:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Wednesday this summer at Arizona Downs, 10501 E. Route 89A in Prescott Valley. Families are welcome and parking and general admission are free.
