Eight Belles


The Kentucky Derby has run, and Big Brown overcame the odds of his far outside position to win by 5 lengths. But the joy of such a well-run race was marred when the second place winner, the big grey filly Eight Belles, collapsed moments later with both her front ankles snapped. She had to be euthenized.

I really hope the Derby officials will get their heads out of their asses and walk away from tradition. The time has come for artificial turf that is easier on the still developing bones and joints of these three year olds. God, this is so sad!!
