On this day in 1974, Frank Whiteley saddled a dark bay two-year-old filly for an unheralded debut. Ruffian was sent off at 9-2 odds… she would never go off above even money again. In one of the most impressive debuts of all time, Ruffian equaled the track record while dominating the race by fifteen lengths. The unparalleled filly is shown here winning her second start, the Fashion, also at Belmont. It was another commanding victory in an equally fast time.
