Watch Ruffian (TV Movie 2007) - Alternative Versions.
The 1970s were the height of the battle of the sexes. Men and women
were in open combat, anywhere and everywhere: tennis (Riggs vs. King),
the voting booth (ERA), and, on July 6, 1975, Belmont Park, when the
undefeated Ruffian was sent off at 1-20 odds (you had to lay 20-1 odds
on her) to defeat the Kentucky Derby winner, Foolish Pleasure, mediocre
in comparison to Ruffian.
Period pieces are not easy to shoot, since they are done from memory
and historical records. I was alive and following the New York tracks
as a youth, and became aware of Ruffian in the spring of 1975, after
she had blazed her way onto the front pages as a legitimate Kentucky
Derby threat. Today, she would have run for the roses without a second
thought, but her owners were old-school and gave it not a second
This film captures the phenomenon that was Ruffian, from promising
ace-in-the-barn that her trainer knew would win her debut at 4-1, but
not by 15 lengths in 1:09. No matter how good they look in training,
you never know what's going to happen when they actually run. Ruffian
answered every question asked of her, even winning when slightly
injured, finding the heart to put away her strong-but-weaker peers.
Ruffian was a freight train, and while the details of the film were
glossed over, this was a TV film and that is often the case. Watch
"Babe Ruth" from 1991 (TV) and "The Babe" from 1992 (Feature Film) for
simimlar disparity. Indeed, you could also read the "Seabiscuit" book
from 1997, and find it much richer than its paperback predecessor,
"Come On, Seabiscuit!" from 1975.
This was the discount version of the Ruffian story. The big-budget
treatment she may one day get awaits.
Ruffian was the first horse ever buried in the infield at Belmont Park.
That is how special she was. She died of a broken leg because horses
like her cannot live even long enough to recover on one, as they are
simply born to run, her like no other.
