  • Mary Z. · You may have a good reason for your article, but sick expletive comes to mind immediately. Now, that could be a very wrong conclusion about your inquiry, socceretc, but that was my first impression. Try googling what you want to find. Just type the sentence into the search bar and hit enter. · 372 days ago
  • travel_vic · One of the back bone classes in Zoology is comparative anatomy of vertebrates and again the bones distal in a horse's leg are the equivlaent to phalanges in us, HENCE that is what they are called · 372 days ago
she was a good one. could have been great.
  • railbird33 · SO TRUE! She was not taken too seriously in her tragic Derby effort 9-1 final odds, but she was one of 3 horses with a 3 figure Beyers coming into the race, nice exacta with Big Brown. · 372 days ago
As PETA puts it - "This young filly's death may have been humane, but the race sure wasn't. PETA is calling for the immediate suspension of jockey Gabriel Saez—who whipped Eight Belles mercilessly as she came down the final stretch, no doubt in agony from two front legs that were about to snap."

  • jay s. · TheyAreOff. Well, I'm glad to hear it and hope it is the case. Although it would've been nice had you articulated these sentiments along with your original post. I think if you go back and read it objectively, the audience really can draw no other conclusion than the one all of us seemed to. Eight Belles is about a touchy-of-subject as it gets. I'll put the hyena in a cage. · 754 days ago

Eight Belles was a GREAT filly. Its sad that she had to be put down. I will always remember this beautiful filly. <3
This is probably the best horse that never won a Grade1.
How tall was Eight Belles? She looks really small in all her pictures.
This video made me so teary! I had to share with those fellow fans of her! She was not only a great horse bit a beautiful one as well! Rip Belles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n95OFivNuFw&feature=fvwrel
