That was the saddest race I've ever watched.

I'm not normally into the racing scene, but have been watching the Triple Crown races since I was kid, & still do now - mostly because 2 of my mares did race & both are related to famous racers (Alydar & Ruffian).

This particular tragedy was all the more poignant because I know Barbaro's trainer, Michael Matz, from his old equestrian days, & he's a really nice guy. I know bad luck happens to everyone, but this was a real whammy for someone who didn't deserve it.

We can only hope that they're able to save the horse, but the prognosis is pretty grim. Horses aren't easy to keep confined & immobile for long periods of time.

I'm not a fan of racing, but happened to catch the Derby and saw Barbero win. Became a huge fan, and we all made plans to watch the Preakness. I just burst into tears when I saw him lame, and my heart is heavy this morning. Reports I've read have said 2 fractures, one above and one below the ankle, that happened the first part of the race - not as a result of the horse breaking the gate at the beginning. He's at U. of Pa. vet center. I hope they can save this wonderful animal.

Yes - the Derby was spectacular.

Do you know that a horse hasn't won the Derby by that many lengths in 60 years???
