                             Ruffian Remembered

Ruffians imposing size and beauty are unmatched.  Her breeding was superb. Her father, Reviewer was one of the best ever.  Ruffian is the fourth filly to carry this name this century.  Her mother, Shenanigans was by Native Dancer.  Shenanigans produced Icecapade a great runner and leading sire in the world. Reviewer by Bold Ruler, the sire of Secretariat.  You could not breed a better filly if you had tried.  Ruffian lived up to her breeding and no horse ever was in front of her in her racing career.  And those who ran with her or tried to never ran again at top levels and won.  She was so good she took competitors spirits away.  And most of all, her courage to the end transcends all of us.  We remember her 10 race career. We remember her always on the lead.
