How We Met

obviously she is not mine but she is an amazing horse that i would love to have.no filly has one a kentucky derby in 49 years, she got 2nd place in the kentucy derby! then tragiclly broke both of her front pasterns on the track. Her owner didn't give her any chance and put her down right there. at some times i think horse racing is cool and fun to watch but at other times when somthing like this happens it makes me want to cry seeing what horrible things people do to horses just for entertainment and money..

She deserves it.
Eight Belles was used for the wrong purposes. If she could've been used for something else she'd probably would still be alive. She has my vote, I hope you vote for one of my horses. Horse racing is just as bad as dog fighting now a days.

Come visit me, Our Little Runaway, Amerhetto On Ice, Calico OHS, Rockabilly & Saniera.

just a couple things to note...
she was a 3 year old, not a 4 year old like you have posted (the Kentucky Derby is a race for 3 year olds)
and she was 17 hands high, not 15.2 like you put.

also, in the How We Met section you put "Her owner didn't give her any chance" and to that I just have to say there wasn't a chance to give her. I know that it is a sad thing that they had to put her down but they had to becuase with both her front legs broken she couldn't even stand so there was just no real chance for her to recover even if they had tried.

Thank you for this tribute to Eight Belles. I certainly chose option #2 in this week's poll. Racing is all about money at the expense of innocent, brave, and willing (and too young) horses. What happened to Eight Belles was just an example of the tragedies that happen every day in the shady realm of horse racing.

Come visit me, Amber & Zoe.
