RUIDOSO, NEW MEXICO - They're going to be ready to race at Ruidoso Downs this weekend.

Track officials say they will resume horse racing Saturday.

The Ruidoso area was overwhelmed by rainfall early Sunday due to the remnants of Hurricane Dolly.

Trucks hauled in fresh soil Monday to rebuild the track while crews cleaned out mud-soaked buildings.

The track surface and jockey's quarters were the hardest hit.

All 1,400 horses were reported safe in dry stalls.
