** spoiler alert ** Jane Schwartz did an admirable job telling the story of the people surrounding and life of this amazing filly in American horseracing. I actually teared up when it described her breaking her leg during the match race and just wanting to keep going.

I hope that Ruffian is running as fast as she wants through verdant hills and over soft tracks, giving Secretariat a run for his money.
