Ruffian [04:34]
WARNING: This might be a difficult video to watch. Includes her breakdown during the Great Match race. It's meant to be a tribute to a fearsome horse called Ruffian. She was otherworldly. Multiply Zenyatta by 100 and you've got Ruffian. She was a most amazing horse.

Genuine Risk [08:25]
Trained by LeRoy Jolley, Genuine Risk won the Kentucky Derby by a length in 1980, joining 1915 Derby winner Regret as the second filly to win the Derby. Winning Colors became the third in 1988. Genuine Risk, who finished second in the Preakness and Belmont, remains the only filly to finish in the money in all three Triple Crown races. Her defeat in the Preakness was controversial, coming after jockey Angel Cordero Jr. allowed eventual winner Codex to drift out, carrying Genuine Risk wide on the turn for home just as she was challenging. She lost by 4 3/4 lengths. Adding to the controversy, Genuine Risk's rider, Jacinto Vasquez, lodged a foul against Cordero, claiming that Cordero also had hit Genuine Risk on the head while whipping Codex right-handed. But the stewards let the order of finish stand. "It's hard to say whether she'd have won," Jolley said. "Obviously, Codex ran very well that day, and she certainly didn't benefit from the incident. It had to cost her a pretty good amount. But whether she could have won or not, who knows? I would like to have seen it done in a normal manner, and we'd have had a lot better answer." Bred by Mrs. G. Watts Humphrey Jr. in Kentucky, Genuine Risk sold to the Firestones as a yearling for $32000 at Fasig-Tipton's 1978 summer yearling sale. The Firestones initially did not have her on their list until their son Matthew, 14 at the time, told them he thought she deserved a look. Matthew helped break Genuine Risk later that year at ...

1998 Thoroughbred Racing Hall Of Fame Inductees [02:21]
Ansel Williamson, the onetime slave who trained the first winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1875, was inducted into the thoroughbred Hall of Fame today as a legend of racing's past. He was joined by 45-year-old Bill Mott, who saddled Cigar and is a legend of the present, the youngest trainer ever enshrined. ''It came awfully early in life,'' Mott said, sounding a bit awed. ''It was never planned; it was never expected.'' Racing put its best foot forward for its 43d annual ceremony, which attracted a standing-room crowd of 1200 under a tent pitched on a field next to the National Museum of Racing across Union Avenue from the Saratoga Race Course, which is booming in its 130th year. Dozens of famous trainers and jockeys of the past sat together as footnotes to history, applauding the six racing figures being honored. Besides Williamson and Mott, they were Jacinto Vasquez, the jockey who rode 5231 winners, won the Kentucky Derby twice and won 268 stakes races, and three celebrated horses: Riva Ridge, the stablemate of Secretariat and the juvenile champion of 1971, who went on to win the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes in 1972; Bayakoa, the Argentine filly, who became a double champion in the United States by winning 16 of her 21 starts in 1989 and 1990, and Fort Marcy, three times a champion on grass and Horse of the Year for his exploits in 1970. They brought the Hall of Fame roster to 77 jockeys, 71 trainers and 154 horses. But few have been honored as early as Bill ...
