Tragedy at the Kentucky Derby

I got a chance to watch the Kentucky Derby Saturday afternoon. Big Brown was the winner of the Derby, but that was overshadowed with what happened to the runner-up. Above is a picture of track personnel trying to hold down Eight Belles as jockey Gabriel Saez walks past after the 134th Kentucky Derby Saturday, May 3, 2008, at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Eight Belles was euthanized after breaking both front ankles following a second-place finish in the Kentucky Derby.
