(Lucky number 5 in the green with the game face!)
My horse was 8 Bells, the only filly!! I bet on her to place, which she did, then collapsed after the finish due to fractured ankles (anyone know how that happened??) They had to put her down on the spot. As I was watching this I couldn't help thinking what it would be like if that were me. What if I just skated the best race of my life at the most important meet in existence, then suddenly it was all over, my whole career ended in tragedy. You cant tell me thoes horses dont LOVE what they do and KNOW when they do well. They have a slight advantage to us humans and speed skaters though, they cant see the end coming.
