Hell's Belles

I just watched the Kentucky Derby. It was an exciting race, but it was marred by a sad event when the runner-up had to be euthanized immediately after the race due to injuries suffered at or after the finish line.

Who was the poor horse, you ask? Why it was Eight Belles, the only female horse (filly) in the race, and the horse that Hillary Clinton urged Americans to support.

Yes, that's right, the female horse in this race finished second to the winning horse, called "Big Brown," and, immediately after finishing second, they shot her in the head and she died. (I suspect they found a more humane way of putting the horse down than shooting it, but the line worked better that way).
