  1. Sorry, Leslie, I assumed the horse was a filly because of the name. Also, Patrick does go by the horse’s actual birthdate, not the January 1st date. Therefore, the horse was still technically a 2 year old.

  2. Absolutely sick…I agree with Bill Rhoden’s statements in the NYTimes immediately after Eight Belles broke both of her front legs in 2008…racing “grinds up horses”…”It is bullfighting”. A former racing enthusiast, Rhoden had the guts to admit racing is nothing more than animal abuse…to put it to paper and have it published. He took a lot of heat, but being honest often does.

    RIP Miss Da Sunrise. Just a baby, dead for bets.

  3. Only the very tough survive but, of course, some are pushed and abused more than others.
