Meet Ruffi! Named after the famed "Ruffian" the greatest thoroughbred filly of all time. Nicknamed Queen of the Fillies, Ruffian won the Triple Tiara in 1975. In a match against that years Triple Crown winner "Foolish Pleasure"at Belmont Park, Ruffian broke her leg. They repaired her leg but when she began to re-awaken after surgery she became frantic and further damaged her leg. She was sadly euthanized .

Oh my! She is adorable beyond words. A nice tribute to the poor horse. (That was very tragic.)
