Giant, Ugly Dog Shot
The Kentucky Derby claims another life, and this time it's not a fat handicapper with a shot liver and four failed marriages. Eight Belles, only the 4th filly to run the famed "Run for the Roses", broke down during the race and was later euthanized.
For those who enjoy metaphors, Eight Belles was Senator Hillary Clinton's pick to take the race. Quaff a refreshing julep and ponder the possibility of the great political glue factor that is the appointment to the NY governorship awaiting Sen Clinton.
