Will Barbaro go to Heaven?

    That's the question currently being asked on the Lexington Herald-Leader's Web site. Click on the link above to cast your vote.

    Personally, I think the question should be "Is Barbaro in Heaven?" since the horse is already deceased. However, maybe the pollster is assuming there's an equine purgatory or perhaps the pollster believes the Derby winner is in an afterlife paddock preparing his next race, be it in horsey heaven or horsey hell.

    No, because he wasted so many resources with his injury and death that he will be punished for eternity.

    I assume that in horsey heaven the horseys ride the jockeys (also known as jockey hell)

    Yeah, but the docs said because of his treatment, it will help in others like it down the road. Bottom line: Barbaro is going to the highest level of heaven. I can't wait to ride him.

    Good Christ I hope not. I've eaten a lot of animals and I sure don't want to encounter their spirits in the afterlife.

    Is this the most ridiculous question ever posted on a newspaper internet site?

    Ride him how? The way he never got to ride a female (can't remember the word) horse?
  8. I can't stop laughing at this.

    This concept leaves me speechless, yes.
  10. From the technical perspective, it's kind of hard to argue either way not knowing what faith he was.

    Maybe Barbaro was a devout Horslim and believed he was going to meet 72 virgin mares in the afterlife.
