Seeing some reports that some people said he looked very thin going into the Preakness. Hard to see on tv but if it's true I feel bad for the horse. Poor thing might have been sick and starting to feel under the weather then and still ran his guts out the best he could. Thank god exaggerator is a nice horse and won the Preakness so there isn't the same blow of missing out on a possible TC like the connections had to do with I'll have another in 2012. I hope this isn't similar to uncle mo's liver infection he got and that he is back this late summer for some of the big races. I also hope he takes on chrome and beholder this year. He's a special horse and one 3rd place loss takes nothing away from his incredible courage and heart.
Thank you for pointing out just how heartbreaking this much have been for the jacksons. Thank you for putting an amazing photo of the beloved Barbaro. There was an article after Preakness day that came out about the jacksons talking about Barbaro and the experience they had trying to save him. Although people may not 100% agree with them no just euthanizing him on the track, you can't fault them for caring so deeply for this horse. They spared no expense to try to give him a life where he could enjoy his days grazing in a beautiful field. He left us too soon, and I am so sad that this mare had to reopen that wound for them.
An omen not to go. Look how long songbird has been out with her fever.
There are bigger races to be won. Look elsewhere
He is a very calm and collected horse
Can't wait to see the ridiculous and overrated better Andy gives him
Because it's all over the news who bought them. Chrome llc and Reddam's each bought spots for their horses to run in next year
I'm the loser yet you were the one saying Nyquist would win this race and the triple crown easily
Never thought it was a long shot to win the Derby at all
Pointing to older horse races is not running- that's called taking on the best horses in the country.
