My Apologies...

I learned this morning that the filly Eight Belles who finished second in the Kentucky Derby Saturday was euthanized on the track at Churchill Downs after breaking both of her front ankles.
I apologize for not being more aware of the potential for tragedy before the event.
My post on Saturday seems inappropriate today.
I am left wondering:
Is horse racing the sport of kings or the sport of greed?

Hi - Just found your blog - via Maison21 I think - kinda go on autopilot when I'm cruising.

She was too young to be in that race. QE II would be in agreement, apparently having chastized/criticized/boycotted or whatever, races involving young fillies.

Your post was in no way inappropriate.

BTW - You are a gifted writer. And I should know. (And no, it doesn't take one to know one).

Consider yourself bookmarked.
