||Ruffian Movie accurate|
As one who has worked for 20 years in horse racing with some time on the backstretch, I found this movie to be very accurate - especially in the depiction of the personal relationships between the jockey's, trainers and backstretch workers.

||Ruffian A Hit|

||I remember Ruffian|
I loved Ruffian, I saw the race, on TV. I guess I pushed this memory out of my mind, did not watch racing alot.
