1975 Filly Triple Crown winner who never lost a race against other fillies, but unfortunately had to be euthanised after breaking down in a match race against Foolish Pleasure. She broke a leg and wanted to keep on running. Shortly after a desperate attempt to re-construct her leg she awoke from anesthesia, breaking her cast. She was put to sleep and buried in the infield at Belmont Park, her head facing the finish line. Greatest thoroughbred filly of my lifetime--and in my opinion--anyone else's.
While Ruffian would have beaten Winning Colors, Genuine Risk, Personal Ensign, Go for Wand, Bayakoa and Regret, she may have had trouble with Secretariat.

Get the Ruffian mug.
Greatest racehorse of all time ever. The only race she lost is was the race she died. In the era of women rights, she did us all proud even if we weren't alive. She only lived to be 3 due to a tragic end.
Person 1- Who is the greatest race horse ever?
Person 2- Ruffian, duh!

To be a Ruffian is to be a fan of voice acting legend Michelle Ruff.
