BARBARO, 4

The winner of the Kentucky Derby was euthanized on Monday at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center.

Eight months ago, Barbaro was injured at the Preakness Stakes. Surgery to fuse a broken right back limb was successful, but the horse's front feet became infected with laminitis caused by uneven weight distribution.

Great Game of Mortality. Gotta pick up points as you can get 'em.

I heard on the radio that they kept him going only so that they could milk a few more stud fees out of him before he had to be put down

I can't believe a horse ges a death notice or headline. Sure, it's an expensive horse, but come on. Barbaro who?

A horse is a horse, of course, of course.
