Barbaro's Brother in Kentucky - Future Triple Crown Winner
Last year was heartbreaking as we saw the breakdown of Barbaro in the 2006 Preakness and followed his recovery.
His injury had not broken the skin and Dr. Bramlege felt he might be saved. So we watched as this brave horse struggled to live for 8 months. Despite valiant efforts of his doctors, owners and fans he had to be put to sleep. For my friends that followed Barbaro and The Kentucky Derby I saw this clip today of Barbaro's brother.
Today, Sunday, April 29, a foal on Mill Ridge Farm in Lexington will turn nine days old.He is the son of Dynaformer and LaVille Rouge. His legacy is that he is Barbaro's little brother. Now the world will be watching him as he plays in his paddock and munches on Kentucky Bluegrass.
You may be looking at the future Triple Crown Winner. He has some BIG shoes to fill.
Friday was the last day for Keeneland (check out the picture below) And now all focus is on Churchill Downs.
I love racing and I can't help shedding a tear or two when they play "My old Kentucky Home" at the Derby next Saturday. Barbaro will be on my mind as what could have been. A sad moment in all the excitement.
