Big Brown wins Kentucky Derby 134...second-place Eight Belles euthanized after post-race injury

Big Brown, one of my three favorites, won the Derby in front of 157,770 people. Eight Belles, the only filly, was second. Sadly, after the race, she broke both of her front ankles and was euthanized. Denis of Cork was third.

Congrats to Big Brown...pray for the owners of Eight Belles.

UPDATE at 7:46pm ET: A few minutes ago, WLEX anchor Kevin Christopher summed up today's events: "One horse won it horse gave it all."
