It’s been thirty seven years since The Great Match Race that proved nothing.
Ruffian, as far as I’m concerned, you never lost a race. The Match didn’t count. Foolish Pleasure did not beat you. You were in front and your leg snapped. You tried to keep running.
Ruffian, 1972-1975. Undefeated in ten starts before breaking down and trying to keep running. Ruffian. The greatest filly of all time.
