Barbaro euthanized

I don't follow horse racing, and I know it has a bad reputation when it comes to caring for it's four-legged athletes.

But I rooted for Barbaro, hoped he'd heal even when I know how unlikely that really was.

He didn't.

It was the right thing for his owners to do, but a sad thing - to me, anyway - nonetheless.

The only thing I can hope is that maybe we've learned a little more about treating such catastrophic equine injuries.
