How We Met

Ruffian was an early spring filly whose owner didn't believe she could make it as far as she did. However, when her trainer Frank Whiteley, Jr. met her, he believed she could. By giving her a chance, Ruffian became the greatest filly in US racing history and the best a brightest..

If you want to know everything about Ruffian get the book, RUFFIAN: Burning from the Start. It starts before she is even born, telling why this stallion was put with this mare. Warning: I cried at the end of this book. It goes over every aspect of her life. You really feel like she is just another horse in your barn.
Ruffian died of a broken leg. During the match race against Foolish Pleasure, she just took a wrong step. After two hours of surgery, she started to wake up. Laying on her side she started moving her legs, they said it looked like she was still running for the finish. She was only 3. She shaddered her cast. There was nothing else they could do. She was buried in the infield of Belmont Park in her coolers. Like I said makes you cry.

wich black and white pic do you like? the one of the little blonde girl on minnie, the one of me on minnie or the one of just minnie? but none of my pics were "professional" but all the ones i took, my mom considers professional becuase i was REALLY into photography a couple years back, i would pay my little cousins to help me set up back drops in our den and i'd pay leah,(the little blonde girl in 1 of my pics) to modle! LOL! if i'm in the pics, then my friend took them if i'm not in it then i probably took it. thanks for your comments heres a vote! but lemme know wich b/w pic u liked cuase every one says they love my b/w pic and i dunno wich one! bye!

Hey, Abby, it says that Ruffian is 35, but i thought that she died in the race when she broke her leg?? and she definitely wasn't 35 when she ran that race.

Come visit me, Smoke.

That's to bad that she died. What did she die from? My guess is old age.
