I had a video appear on my facebook timeline of Ruffian winning the 1975 Mother Goose stakes. It made me wonder if her bloodline was still around.

Ruffians dam was called Shenanigans looking at Shenanigans female progeny, the only filly,other than Ruffian, was a mare called Laughter. Laughter was by Bold Ruler and won 19k on the track.

Laughter's best filly was named Steel Maiden she was by Damascus and won 119k

Steel Maiden produced 10 foals of which only 2 were male her best filly was named Mesabi Maiden and by Cox's Ridge. Mesabi Maiden earned 240k.

Mesabi Maiden produced 8 horses of which only one was male her best Lady Liberty by Unbridled earned 202k.

Lady Liberty's best progeny was Orb, who won the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

Ironically, Orb's best progeny to date is 3 year old filly Sippican Harbor, who was retired 3 weeks ago and bred to Medaglia d'Oro
