Share your Barbaro thoughts
Fri, May 18, 2007

When the gate bursts open to start the Preakness Stakes on Saturday, the horse charging out of the No. 6 post will be a handsome bay colt. Only this time, it won’t be Barbaro, even if it might seem that way. After all, images of last year’s race are still superimposed on the minds of many.

Barbaro’s owners, trainer and jockey will be back at Pimlico Race Course looking for closure following a year of highs, lows and, finally, heartbreak when the colt was euthanized Jan. 29. Barbaro was honored two weeks ago at Churchill Downs, where his brilliant 61/2-length victory was replayed on video. At Pimlico, it will be difficult for many to look at the wide strip of dirt in front of the grandstand without visualizing the breakdown.

One year later sadness lingers

It's a horse people! Get over it!

Unbelievable!

The Preakness has run again and Curlin won. Still Barbaro is the # One horse!! Of all times.

I have yet to see a horse with such personality and grace. He will live on in everyone's heart and mind forever!

I don't know about anyone else, but for the first 30 seconds of today's Preakness I will be holding my breath, hoping that another Barbaro-type accident doesn't happen. To this day I can't believe that horse is gone. When you see how dominant he was in winning the 2006 Kentucky Derby, you have to feel that Barbaro was just as much an athlete as Tiger Woods or Michael Jordan.
