Ruffian, The Greatest Filly!
I loved this book about Ruffian. The author, Jane Schwartz, tells the story of Ruffian beginning at her birth, her training and racing career, to the ill fated Match Race at Belmont with Foolish Pleasure. The book also describes the love between Ruffian and her trainer, Frank Whiteley, her jockey, Jacinto Vasquez and her owners, Mr & Ms Janney. This book requires a box of tissues. A must have for horse lovers. FYI: Frank Whiteley passed away on 5/2/2008, the day before Eight Belles passed away in the Kentucky Derby. God Bless, Ruffian, Frank and Eight Belles.
