    Just a tragedy.
    I will say this, NBC is all over this with one exception -- the interview with the winning jockey was too long and the interviewee saying, "The thing about horse racing is there's always a winner." Not necessary. And only one comment from the jock was needed.
    Nice job getting the vet right away.

    The race is a complete afterthought.
  2. Don't think I ever saw a horse false-start before.
    That sideways jogging motion didn't look too good.
    At least they don't roll the screen out any more.

       Bernardini's owners now know how Michael Waltrip felt five years ago.
       I'm not writing Barbaro's obit yet, though his racing days seem done. As equine grossout, that's nothing compared to Go for Wand or Ruffian.
    * Edited to correct my mistake. But then again, that mistake proves the point.

    Oh my God, I'm sick to my stomach right now. That was terrible ... I just phoned home to tell my wife not to let my 4-year-old daughter, who is starting to develop an interest in horse racing, watch the race.

    Good luck Barbaro.
