Hey, Stop Horsing Around and Get Up Already

This might sound a tad bit callous, but I'd just like to take the time to thank Eight Belles for crossing the finish line before breaking her ankles and getting euthanized. That courageous act won me a cool $350. Instant Replay and the Carousel thank you as well, as those fine local establishments are undoubtedly the final destinations for said winnings. Somewhere in horsey heaven, Barbaro hind kicked the tv set after the race because Eight Belles took the former Derby winners bit and dialed it up a notch.
