Francesa: Mr. Porter, I had the pleasure of seeing your filly win the Grade II Fantasy Stakes just this spring.
Porter smiles and nods
Col. Jessep: Eight Belles?
Porter: Yes sir
Well, what do you know. Dog, this man's filly made a lot of enemies down in your neck of the woods. Eight Belles vs Big Brown. The folks down there said a filly couldn't run with the boys in the Kentucky Derby. Eight Belles said we'll see about that. Last time I saw her, she was galloping across the finish line in second. How the hell is Eight Belles?
Porter: She was euthanized on the backstretch, sir.
Col. Jessep: Don't I feel like the fucking asshole?
Porter: Not at all sir.
