Amazing-a hero

  • Mary Z. · Laz, I think you didn't get what I meant about the no potatoes, no tomatoes. Anyway, I can't use my passport unless I only want to go somewhere for two days. Maybe some other time. I'm doing great, though, considering. That was really sad about gorgeous Barbaro, but who knows if he should have gone through the months of recovery . Maybe much easier to say no, knowing the result. I noticed that he could not walk right with all of the metal support in his leg. Hard to think about him like that. I remember thinking when he won the Florida Derby that he would one day be disqualified fir that much bumping--did it early on in the Florida Derby, but then some of the really good ones do bull their way through. · 66 days ago
  • Mary Z. · Looking forward to a safe Preakness for all. I have worried about Chrome's legs, too. Kids and older kids need a TC winner. Nothing like that. · 66 days ago
RIP Barbaro. April 29, 2003 - January 29, 2007.

  • travel_vic · even minor flailing in that gate can cause lots of damage. We had one flip and the assistant starters laid on top of the horse to keep it calm while they moved the gate after the others were removed. As I said the assisstant starters are "crazy" brave. · 66 days ago
  • kay.robinett · At Dubai this year one of the horses had a problem in the gate and a vet very carefully checked the horse over (ran hands up and down his legs, watched his movement very carefully, etc.) I remember wondering if something like that might have saved Barbaro. I was very glad when they scratched E,press of Midway, and wish they had scratched that nice California filly who had gate troubles in the Oaks as well. · 66 days ago
Does anyone know where I can watch the full broadcast of the 2006 Kentucky Derby? I'm surprised it isn't on youtube, as many other years are.

There will NEVER be another horse like Barbaro or Secretariat!
  • travel_vic · Barbaro cannot be compared to Red at ANY level. A flash in the pan that did not do that much. Not even close · 184 days ago
  • kaitlinefree1 · how could you consider Barbaro a "flash in the pan" he didn't just fade away, he was injured. · 184 days ago
i think he would have been one of the best race horses this country had sever seen if he didnt get injured so early on he will always be rememebred

My favorite Derby victory. So sad he never got to truly develop into the superstar he could have been. Hope Matz gets another star in his barn soon as I love him as a trainehttp://youtu.be/ienAR6vgVLor
I still remember when i found this jewl of a gem after his madien race. I turned and told to the guy next to me triple crown is on his radar and hes my early favorite for the derby. He never left my number 1 spot never disapointed me in any race. Miss ya barbaro was great when i got to see you up close will never forget it. Your biggest fan truly MK
6 years ago today, the great Barbaro was put down. R.I.P. Barbaro, I Love YOU!!!!

  • travel_vic · Heads should have rolled with the gate vet. ANY TIME a baby rapped the gate, our vet assumed a possible tendon or ligament could have been weakened and did the logical thing: PASS the race today and be safe. · 528 days ago
  • notobsessed · I've observed that sometimes the gate vet lets them run and sometimes they scratch them, no consistency in the decisions. Possibly scratching the Derby winner from the Preakness was not something the gate vet was prepared to do. · 528 days ago
It's been six years since Barbaro was put down. His life lived short, the memories he gave me will be remembered forever. What memories can I start with??? I remember watching his maiden win, while the announcer screamed "Barbaro a star in the making!", now a call that makes me sad evertime I listen to it. I remember cashing in on him in the Holy Bull, and telling my friend, who's wife just weeks before, that we should go see his FL Derby. I remember the undercard of the FL Derby. My friend and I were partnering up, and were down 450 on the day. Then, we went to the paddock, right before the FL Derby, the first time I laid eyes on him. Is asked my friend "Why is a quarter horse in the paddock?" Then realizing it was Barbaro. I remember betting Barbaro $20 WP on the FL Derby. As the went off, Barbaro rated speedster Sharp Humor the entire way. As the stretch came out, Barbaro (in m eyes) looked emptied. I yelled (something like) "Damn! Another loser!" Then, he suddenly was catching up. He and Sharp Humor dueled, and I was speechless. He fell back a nose, and came back. We then went right near the winner circle, and I smiled because Barbaro was the happiest horse I have ever seen. I remember videtaping me predicting a TC to Barbaro. I remember betting him 200 to win in the derby. And watching him win by six lengths. I remember when the gate crew put him back in the gate, tragically, he injured himself. I remember my then five year old writing/drawing a card "Get Well Soon Barbaro" I remember the da he died. My favorite horse of all time, R.I.P Barbaro.
Just wondering .. if youcould brink one horse who's career ended prematurely backto the track to finsh thier career injury free - who would it be and why? It would be a toss up for me between Ruffian and Barbaro - with Barbaro getting my final vote. Primarily because I think Barbaro had more of a carrer left after the injury than Ruffian did. Even if Barbaro had not won the triple crown (which I believe he would have) He would have gone on to be a powerful contender - I think Ruffian was on her way out. This is pure speculation of course, but I am curious to see what others think.
Ruffian was a proven brilliant animal, the jury was still out on the other one

  • icyhotboo · This could have been a great horse and could have established a rivalry with Bernardini. Barbaro's ability to run on both turf and dirt with authority I think it was sets him a little apart from other horses without enough to base a solid opinion on. · 569 days ago
Browsing youtube and I found this and couldn't help but to share this, it for all horse racing fan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYkF046ERtU

Asked for a painting by Nick Martinez of one of my favorites for Christmas. Truly think he would have taken the triple crown. He was just so talented, didn't even look like he broke a sweat in the Derby. Wish we could have seen what he could really do. RIP Barbaro

  • travel_vic · Read the accounts of the race and the incompetent starter who had a history of the same. Marshall Cassidy had been to an all night bash and was too hung over to come in that day. · 578 days ago
For people who disagree, or annoyed, please do not respond: "The Derby is a race where often the best horse doesn't win, but today it was pretty obvious the best horse (Barbaro) did." Paraphrased off the top of my head, so not sure if it the exact words or not.
