Eight Belles

03 May

Anytime a filly races in the Kentucky Derby, I will cheer for her.  Thirty eight fillies have started and only three have won.  Today, Eight Belles, my hopeful who placed second, was euthanized immediately following the race.  She broke both front ankles and it is impossible to rehab a horse with this kind of injury.  

This photo was taken just an hour after the race of one of the many roses in bloom off the porch. 

For Eight Belles:  May you run in greener pastures of heaven.

    This is a gorgeous shot of the rose in the dusky hue. A mourning rose. Eight Belles…so very sad and tragic.
