For 2 vastly different, yet equally valid & honest perspectives, on Barbaro’s awful bad no-good day at the races, check out Left At The Gate — the best Racehorse blog on the Web; and National Nitwit — for original satire, a genuine Hoot, and one more reason to steer clear of Toledo, Ohio.

One idea comes immediately to my mind: declare his Preakness race a Non-Start — so he’ll retire with his hard-won, undefeated record intact.

The beloved Kentucky Derby champ, who broke down a few hundred feet into Saturday’s Preakness Stakes, suffered multiple leg fractures his veterinarian described as ‘both career ending and life threatening.’ He’ll undergo surgery later today.
