Re: Babaro Euthanized

I always wonder if the horse in these races just run because they are told to or they actually have some sense that their in a race.

Re: Babaro Euthanized

You sure Dr. Vinnie Boombatz wasn't euthanized?

I'd imagine the horse has some sort of clue what they are doing...

If this had been any other horse, it would have been shipped to the glue factory the day after the accident at Pimlico. I have to imagine part of the reason to keep the horse alive was to build up a stock of its semen to sell...

There's no question they were doing that. Trying to breed the next Barbaro.

RIP

Re: Babaro Euthanized

It's sad that Babaro couldn't make it. I was really hopping for a better ending.

Re: Barbaro Euthanized

I think it really was a double edge sword for the owners: On one hand, contrary to what most are led to believe, they actually do care for the animal and his well being. But on the other hand, there is the business side of it.

I saw a show about the owners (60 minutes maybe?) and they were definitely very concerned over the well being of the horse first and foremost. Sure the business side plays a part but I think in this case it was pretty small.

Re: Barbaro Euthanized

I think horses are smarter than we give them credit for. All animals, in fact, are probably smarter than we give them credit for.

A little off topic, but anyways...
Here's a cool slow-mo video of a horse galloping:
Vision Research
...all four legs come off the ground!

After I looked at that, I had a new respect for horses (and really all creatures). Life is amazing!

Here's the site that video came from:
Phantom High Speed Movie Gallery

Re: Barbaro Euthanized

Pretty sad this happened. But it was the right choice at this point, there was too much negative things happening for him to keep up.

Re: Barbaro Euthanized

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one that couldn't care less about this horse. Sure, it sucks that it had to break its leg and (eventually) go before it's time but I just don't see why it became a national hero.
