Rate this:
This is the story of this exceptional filly, a horse so dominating, so powerful, that writer Walter Farley once suggested she was more like his fictional legend, the Black Stallion, than any colt he had ever seen. Beginning with her earliest days in Kentucky, the book follows Ruffian at every stage of her career and through the agony of her final hours--venturing behind the scenes of the racing world and exploring the politics and personalities that came together to shape this extraordinary filly's fate.
