She's has her angel wings now
Oh fuck. She's dead. She's dead. She's dead. I cannot bring myself to stop crying. I have not cried this hard over a horse since Percy and even then it didn't hurt this bad. Oh fucking god. Why, why, why? Why the hell did this have to happen? She was my baby and I loved her so damn much. Oh god why oh why? Oh god! It hurts so bad. She was such a sweetheart. She may not have been the best, but she was so awesome and just so sweet. I remember when I met her at Churchill on Oaks day last year. Oh god it hurts so bad. My poor girl. And what hurts even more was that she had to be in so much pain, something she should never had to deal with. Maybe it's better that she's been put to rest and now she's free, but it doesn't make it any better as it hurts so much. I love you girl. I loved watching you race. I would have loved seeing you're A.P. Indy baby race too. You have your wings now so run like the angel that you are and be free. I love you now and forever and the tears are only for you.
