On May 1, 2008, Hillary Clinton said:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton has urged a group of supporters to put their money on Eight Belles, the only filly in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby.
Clinton made her comments Thursday during a brief visit to Louisville to meet with supporters and volunteers.
Eight Belles will be the first filly in the Derby since 1999. Only three have won the race, with Winning Colors the last to do so in 1988.
Sometimes, these suggestions turn out funny.
The filly came in second, broke both forelegs, and was euthanized immediately on the track.
Two broken legs. Two primaries.
Sounds like a bad omen for Tuesday.
