An amazing story of determination and persistence well acted throughout with lots of horse racing and made all the more fascinating by the fact the story is true. Sam Shepard does his usual great job in this role, and supporting actor Frank Whaley is is thoroughly believable. The undefeated, record breaking, legendary Ruffian is a super tale.
