Kentucky Derby '08 [image heavy!]
 
Well, the Kentucky Derby was okay. I cried, but it was pretty good. There was a field of 20. Big Brown broke from the 20th slot.

These are the results (with pictures!) :

1st: Big Brown

2nd: Eight Belles-She was the only filly, but she broke both of her ankles after and had to be euthanized. I cried.

They're all so pretty. I like Big Brown. It was so sad that Eight Belles had to be euthanized... it was horrible what happened to her. I didn't get to see the Derby for like, the first time in years...

Aww that's a shame. :(
Cute pictures, though!

kitten_Val 05-05-2008 06:45 AM

What happened to her actually? I understand she finished the race anyway. Just SO sad...

Kyani 05-05-2008 07:19 AM

Fab pictures, thankyou.

Kitten_Val, it was just another racing breakdown - babies being worked to hard, too young and compounded by the fact that racehorses are not bred for longerm soundess. Their legs just can't stand up to it - so sad. She had so much heart and talent and it was all wasted.

kitten_Val 05-05-2008 10:42 AM

Horrible! HOW people can do it.... :(

PoptartShop 05-05-2008 10:45 AM

Yeah, it is. :(
