    RIP Barbaro...

    I know Barbaro had to be euthanized yesterday morning at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School's New Bolton Center, but I thought this deserved a thread tonight.

    Barbaro had a tremendous will to live and it really looked like he was going to beat the odds until the past few days. Thoroughbreds, however are analogous to a Lamborghini or Maserati sparkling acceleration and great speed but delicate - all that weight and muscle balanced on - for the horse’s size - lightly boned legs!

    I have a love for animals and had never been so affected by an animal as when I saw him just pull up lame last year in the race. He had been a real trooper going through all this agony since then! RIP

Maybe we’ll give Dave a call and see what he’s up to.” - Edward Van Halen ~ 2009

    I've been following the Triple Crown, Queen's Plate, and the Breeder's since I was about 6. My son and I picked Barbaro to win the Kentucky. I didn't place a bet at the local bar for the race (dang, should have done it). When the Preakness race started, my son and I picked Barbaro again. My son asked, what is wrong with our horse? I said Barbaro injured himself and they may have to put him down. My son was concerned about his horse and I held my boy and said it'll be alright. I was amazed that Barbaro lasted this long.

    An offer has been extended to Barbaro's owners about burying him at Churchhill Downs, along side some other Kentucky Derby winners. No word if that is where he will be buried or not.
