Barbaro Put Down

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

In case you lived in hole for the past year, there was some (read: tonnes) of media coverage about this spectacular race horse. His name was Barbaro and he won the Kentucky Derby, part of racing’s Triple Crown. He was also a favourite to win the following two Triple Crown events; but an accident at the Preakness cost him months of surgery and now his life. Yesterday Barbaro was put down following complications following several surgeries after breaking his leg in the Preakness accident. It may sound cold, but Barbaro has received far more coverage than a horse probably should have; it would be hypocritical to go any further with this post.
