A Ticket You Couldn't Throw Away

Here's a gem from the Not to the Swift Archive(which is located in my basement and not open to the public).

I usually crumple up my losing tickets, I don't know why maybe because I get some kind of closure out of it (closure, man is that word overused). Anyway with the Ruffian movie set to air tomorrow night I thought I'd share one of only two tickets that I have ever saved.

This is my two dollar win ticket on Ruffian from her last race, that famous and tragic match race against Foolish Pleasure on July 6, 1975, yes Ruffian was gone but this was a way to hold on to her.
