There's always next year.    :(

Nice race by the winner and the filly.

That was one of the most courageous performances I've ever seen by Eight Belles.  She probably raced part of that race on her two front broken ankles, and still finished second. 
I've never seen a horse euthanized immediiately after a race.  I am sort of sick to my stomach right now.  That's just disturbing.

I can't watch horse racing..over the years watching behind the scenes stuff and knowing al the drugs they pump into those horses and all the crap that the jockeys go through, then watching all the time those horses breaking legs racing and having to be put down, I don't know, I just don't see anything positive with horse racing, unless you just like to throw money around on it..

I am with you after today MarriedJo.  That is really a fucked up scene right after the Derby, when my daughter (who was rooting for the filly the whole time) got the 'sense" to check the internet and realize both her ankles were broken.  She hasn't figured out about the euthanization, which is a whole other set of issues I'll probably have to deal with tomorrow.
Fuck!
