The nation mourned when the great Barbaro was euthanized less than nine months after winning the 2006 Kentucky Derby. Many also wept three decades ago after the undefeated filly Ruffian went hoofbeat to hoofbeat with 1975 Kentucky Derby winner Foolish Pleasure in a match race one fateful Sunday at Belmont Park. That storied race, which ended in tragedy 600 yards from the starting gate, became the inspiration for "Ruffian," a bittersweet TV movie that airs at 9 p.m.
