Pink Day at the Races is organized by trainer Jaime Zamora. Jaime, a Breast Cancer Survivor, is passionate about educating women as well as men about Breast Cancer. The Racing Community throughout the State of NM has backed Mrs. Zamora in her quest to educate racing fans and to raise money for continued research.
