Ruler On Ice Upsets in Belmont


It was a 1-2-3 finish for descendants of our little Dancer in the Belmont. The great great grandmother of Ruler On Ice was Northern Dancer's daughter Fanfreleuche. Fanny was kidnapped when she was in foal from her farm in Kentucky. They found her being used as a saddle horse some time later. She, like the Dancer is in Canada's Horse Racing Hall of Fame.
