Online Petition To Honor Eight Belles

Less than a week after the death of Derby runner-up Eight Belles, there's already a movement to pay tribute to her.

There's an online petition that is aimed at getting Churchill Downs to ring a bell eight times before the Kentucky Derby next year.

Filly eight belles broke both her ankles after Saturday's race and had to be put down on the track. Her death prompted PETA to call for the suspension of the horse's jockey and trainer.

If you'd like more information about the petition or want to sign it yourself, follow the link below.
