RE: [RC] [RC] Barbaro - heidi

     Would that the Thoroughbred breeders/owners/trainers/registry begin a 
deliberate program to weed out of its system breeding stock with anything 
other than the most substantial and solid legs. Hard to say what factor was 
the greatest in the breakdown, 

Sandy, while I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment, I have a hard time 
swallowing this sort of discussion in the context of Barbaro's death.  This was 
my initial reaction to his injury as well, I have to admit--but after watching 
the tapes over and over and over again of his accident, he was so clearly 
stepped on that one honestly can't blame genetics and fragility for this one.
