How We Met

Barbaro (April 29, 2003 – January 29, 2007) was an American thoroughbred that decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby but shattered his leg two weeks later, in the 2006 Preakness Stakes, ending his racing career and eventually leading to his death.

On May 20, 2006, Barbaro ran in the Preakness Stakes as a heavy favorite, but he fractured three bones in and around the ankle of his right hind leg shortly after the start of the race. The injury ruined any chance of a Triple Crown win and ended his undefeated racing career. The next day, he underwent surgery at the New Bolton Center at the University of Pennsylvania for his injuries, but he soon developed laminitis in his left rear leg. He had an additional five surgeries, and his prognosis varied as he remained for an extraordinarily long period of time in the equine Intensive Care Unit. While his right leg eventually healed, a final risky surgery on it proved futile because the colt soon developed further laminitis in both front legs. His veterinarians and owners then concluded that he could not be saved, and Barbaro was euthanized on January 29, 2007.

Beautiful Barbaro!
Barbaro will be missed by hundreds of thousands of people. It is weird that he was foaled on April 29th, three days after my b-day, and euthanized on January 29th, a day after my mom's b-day. I will miss him, along with many others. That is one of the risks of racing. I'm glad that his owners had enough money to keep him alive long enough to capture a nation full of horse lovers young and old. His life has opened a door in laminitis research, which never would have been open so wide without him. Because of Bardaro countless horses will have a chance a surviving a serious attack of laminitis.

P.S. I left a comment on Tara's page. She is beautiful. Good luck with the foal when it is born!

pretty horse!!! omfg! i luv barbaro, im gonna start to cry again, i dont think they should have horse races for our pleasure, if they want to run and get hurt... let em' run. but besides that they should just do what they want, not what we want to force them to do.

I LOVE YOU BARBARO!!


CHAMPION, SNICKERS, STELLA, BLOSSOM WILL LOVE HIM FOREVER!! AND OF COURSE ME!!!

MAY I MAKE A SUGGESTION? EVERYONE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE VIDEO OF BARBARO GO TO WWW.YOUTUBE.COM AND SEARCH BARBARO, AND IF THAT IS NOT ENOUGH GO TO WWW.GOOGLE.COM AND SEARCH "VIDEOS OF BARBARO" OR SOMTHING LIKE THAT AND YOU WILL BE SURE TO HAVE SOMTHING, ALSO AVAILABLE ON GOOGLE IS BARBARO'S PEDIGREE!

I loved him and watched his progress constantly. I had a retired race horse and they were cousins by great grandparents or some generation around that. My horse had to be put down because of colic. They are together now though and in no pain. I miss you Spunky you were the best and most loving horse ever I love you!, and Barabro.

Come visit me, Vader.

Wow
i have no idea what to say, i really don't know much about horse racing, but from what i've heard about Barbaro, he was a fighter. Although it's pretty asome that he made it as far as he did, he had the heart of a racer, and he was a proud one too.

His memory will live on..
Barbaro was a great horse, but as much as it pains me to see him put down, i know his owners did the right thing, he was in alot of pain and i would rather he not be in pain at all, then die slowly while in pain.
R.I.P Barbaro, we'll rember you forever...
