Re: [RC] Barbaro Update - Sky Ranch

I hope this horse gets to the breeding shed.  His spirit, alone, is enough
to hope that his genes will passed on.

And for what it's worth, I agree with a previous post that Barbaro's owners,
trainers, and veterinarians who are fighting so hard to keep this horse
alive, are not "in it" for the money.  I believe they care deeply for this
special horse.

I've wanted, for years, for the horse racing industry -- not just TB, but QH
racing also -- to wait another year before they start training and racing
the young horses.  Not only that, but the jockeys need to have consideration
as well -- the strict weight requirements for jockeys threaten their health.
If the horses were a year older, they could handle the extra weight of the
jockey better, couldn't they?
