PLEASE READ: Eight belles, the 4th filly horse to ever race in the Kentucky Derby, tried to become just only the 2nd filly horse to ever win in this prestigous race. After beating 18 other GUY horse, she fell down to the ground and was immediately euthanized due to her 2 broken ankles. It is truly a sad story. She was a great horse with a BIG heart! If Eight Belles had wn the derby, the payout was 15-1. Meaning for every dollar put down, you get 15 times that amount. EX.
