Eight Belles, trained by Larry Jones and ridden by Gabriel Saez, collapsed just *after* the finish of the Derby; and she was humanely destroyed on the track after veterinarians found that she had broken both front legs.
I suspect that NBC has tape of Eight Belles pulling up injured after the end of the race. She didn't go down immediately, but collapsed shortly after the finish. She was euthanized within minutes after the finish of the Derby.
IF the tape graphically showed her breaking both front legs, I believe that NBC had the good sense not to show such a morbid, tragic event.
IF the tape showed her collapsed in agony on the track with veterinarians surrounding her, I admire NBC's restraint.
Did you want to watch her being euthanized?
In any case, I salute NBC for not pandering to what seems to be an unfortunate appetite for the gruesome, ghastly details of the death of a noble animal.
