Hillary’s Horse Finishes 2nd, Collapses, Put Down
Sad and surreal: Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton told an Indiana crowd, “I hope that everybody will go to the [Kentucky] derby on Saturday and place just a little money on the filly for me. I won’t be able to be there this year — my daughter is going to be there and so she has strict instructions to bet on Eight Belles.”
Eight Belles finished second. Then, tragically, collapsed immediately after crossing the finish line, breaking two ankles. She had to be euthanized.
There’s some symbolism in there, somewhere.
