One of the first things we saw as we approached Churchill Downs was the new bronze statue of Barbaro.

Barbaro was the incredible thoroughbred who won the 2006 Kentucky Derby and then died tragically two weeks later while racing in the Preakness.

It was a moment that race fans, horse lovers...and anyone who tuned in to see the race... will never forget...and, it is only fitting that this statue was erected in honor of this horse who stole all of our hearts...
