Considered to be the greatest thoroughbred filly of all time, Ruffian shattered horse racing records with her power. This engaging drama tells the story of her brief career. In 1975, a packed Belmont Park crowd gathers for the much-anticipated match race against the formidable colt Foolish Pleasure. But nearly a mile into the race, Ruffian suffers a tragedy that shocks the spectators. Sam Shepard and Frank Whaley star in this fact-based drama.
