Eight Belles-The last bell

When this Saturday was coming, I was looking forward to the race, I was looking forward to it, although with some trepidation. Two years ago, the lead horse took a fall shortly after starting the race. He would be ok - so it seemed - but this Preakness shook me up.

Eight Belles received a lot of attention prior to the race. When the field came down the stretch, Eight Belles and Big Brown seemed in a battle, until Eight Belles faded, just a bit. Wow, I said to myself, this was a classic race.

Then Eight Belles buckled from underneath her.
