For the Record

Eight Belles: An article on the death of Kentucky Derby filly Eight Belles in Sunday's Sports section said that viewers at home watching NBC were left wondering as the network, seemingly caught off guard, failed to provide many details of what had happened to Eight Belles. NBC advises that it, in fact, had planned what to do in the event there was an accident, and did provide details, including the euthanization of the horse. After the horse went down, the network did not show the graphic footage, and showed only a distant shot taken from a blimp.
