Jeff Ruby Goes For The Triple Crown

THERE COULD STILL BE A TRIPLE CROWN WINNER AT BELMONT - Cincinnati Restaurateur Places Bet His Jockeys Will Complete The 2017 Sweep- Jeff Ruby, the legendary restaurateur behind a collection of world-class steakhouses bearing his name (JeffRuby.com), is looking forward to a Triple Crown victory of his own as the world’s finest thoroughbreds compete in The Belmont Stakes on June 10.

Meet Jeff Ruby - WLWT 5

CINCINNATI'S BEST STEAKHOUSE ENTREPRENEUR— He is outspoken and controversial. Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby is known as much for his rewards and taking on criminals as he is for his steaks.  But before he was looking for justice and trying to solve murder cases, he was running from a rough life along the Jersey shore.  Ruby sat down with WLWT’s Sheree Paolello to talk about where he came from, how he became “The King of Fine Dining” in Cincinnati and why he offers up rewards for people he's never met.  With his signature cigar in one hand, he was brutally honest, humble and funny. The two-hour interview begins with Ruby taking Paolello back in time.  Ruby's birth name was Brian Jeffrey Kranz. He was named after his mother’s first husband.  But as it turns out, Ruby wasn't the son of any of his mother's four husbands. Ruby s...

Together, they harnessed their collective talents to win the Kentucky Derby. Always Dreaming splashed through the slop for a 2 3/4-length victory Saturday, giving Todd Pletcher and rider John Velazquez their second victories in the race but their first together.
