Passion and remberence of this steed,
a gallant battle of enduring need,
he was a champion of champions,

Broad and stout of gleaming speed
A gallant breed with heart a fire
Rescued after a winning desire
Blameless of unfortunate times
A mountain of love for all that he touched
Regrets have none, for his star will shine
Oh Barbaro, you live in our memory and time

    Barbaro, was as beautiful as he was a wonderful runner. Of course, witnessing his Kentucky Derby victory was very exciting, and yes, I did bet on him and won. I truly believed he had the talent and pedigree to capture the Triple crown that year. What happened to him in the Preakness was heart-breaking, however, his owners did everything they could to save him. It just wasn't to be, and laminitis is a known scourge for these amazing animals.
