This story and this video make me glad that Bar had owners and trainers that actually like horses.
It is a beautiful thing to watch these equine athletes move, especially when they are healthy. I'd like to think Big Brown just had an off day, maybe didn't feel like racing, but I do have to wonder about the steroids and how much not having it affected him. The racing industry has some things to think about and fix if they want people to keep watching, if they want to not look as bad as they look at the moment.
I love my boy, and I'm glad in a way his injury pulled him off the track and he ended up with us. I know there are a lot of other race horses that aren't as lucky.
