MMX 065 Barbaro

The winner of the 2006 Kentucky Derby, Barbaro, was considered a great contender for the Triple Crown. Barbaro broke his leg in several places on the next race in the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes. After several surgeries the veterinarians decided that he could not be saved and he was euthanized January 27, 2007. This statue sits outside the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville.
