This Filly, Eight Belle got down and dirty against the boys on Saturday’s Derby. As she comes around the final turn she looks done, and you can see her dig in and keep trying. Sad as it is that she fell and was euthanized after the race was over, that is part of the sport, and don’t let anyone tell you these horses don’t love what they do. They’re bred to run; plain and simple. It’s exceptionally sad that her career ended this way, as a filly with her size and grit would have, no doubt, produced some amazing babies.
