A charity that helps thoroughbreds is getting a big donation in the memory of Kentucky Derby runner-up Eight Belles.
Shipping giant UPS has pledged 10 thousand dollars to the Thoroughbred Charities of America, to honor the filly. She had to be euthanized when she suffered an injury after the Derby.
UPS has been riding a wave of enthusiasm lately amid Big Brown's success in the Derby and Preakness. He was named in honor of the company.
