Trainer Larry Jones said, "I keep looking in her stall and she ain't in there, so, yeah, I know she ain't comin' back. Maybe God thought we had her good and ready for him. I have a lot of faith in that. He let Eight Belles run well, and He put her away from most of the people when she fell. He's gonna use it for good things somehow, but I sure don't know what it is or why He had to do it this way. One thing I know for sure is God does not make mistakes. There's a reason for this."
