Well, Expletive!

The filly Eight Belles just ran her heart out, came in second, went down, and will never come up again. I have tears in my eyes and am sad to see her go.

I choked up, too. What a terrible loss.
I am so sad to hear that. Honestly, that kind of thing is what makes it so hard for me to watch horse racing. I'm not one of those weirdo preachy vegetarians who thinks the horses are mistreated. Hell, most real thoroughbred racehorses live better lives than most humans ever get to. And they LOVE to run. So it's not an ethical issue, for the most part. But every once in a while, something like that happens. And I just can't stand to risk watching and witnessing it.

Poor horse. I hope when she fell down, the thought in her head was something along the lines of, "I am running so fast! Whee!"
