  1. Reviewer

    Reviewer was an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known as the sire of the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame filly, Ruffian. Foaled in Kentucky, the dark bay colt was owned and bred by Ogden Phipps. A son of Bold Ruler, the very important Champion sire, his damsire Hasty Road won the 1954 Preakness Stakes. Trained by Hall of Fame inductee Edward A. Neloy, in 1970 the then four-year-old Reviewer set a new Belmont Park track record of 1:46 4/5 for 1⅛ miles in winning the Nassau County Handicap. Reviewer finished his racing career with a record of 13: 9-3-1, and he won $247,223. Ruffian was foaled in his first crop. The filly was euthanized in 1975 following surgery to repair a broken leg sustained in a race. Reviewer himself broke three legs during his career before being retired to stud; he suffered a fourth broken leg in a paddock accident at Claiborne Farm and was subsequently euthanized. His line was known as "Soft boned runners". Shenanigans, Ruffian's mother, was euthanized on May 21, 1977 when she broke two legs after waking from an intestinal surgery. Though not a Champion, Reviewer will always be remembered as the sire of the great Ruffian. Among his other progeny, Reviewer sired the 1976 American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly, Revidere and the good runner Drama Critic.

Examples of reviewer in a Sentence

  1. William S. Burroughs:

    Writing prejudicial, off-putting reviews is a precise exercise in applied black magic.

  2. Kurt Vonnegut:

    Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
