  • Locals have horse nominated for Triple Crown Series

    Mr. Ruff, a 3-year-old gray/roan colt, is one of 448 nominees for the Triple Crown in thoroughbred racing this year.

    Mr. Ruff is owned by Farmer Ridge Farm, located at 213 Thoroughbred Court in Taylor County, and is nicknamed "The Bopper" because of his walking head movements when he was born in Taylor County in April, 2005 at Farmer Ridge Farm.
