Barbaro update:

Barbaro sustained a broken cannon bone above the ankle, a broken sesamoid bone behind the ankle and a broken long pastern bone below the ankle. The fetlock joint - the ankle - was dislocated.
Richardson said the pastern bone was shattered in "20-plus pieces."
The bones were put in place to fuse the joint by inserting a plate and 23 screws to repair damage so severe that most horses would not be able to survive it.


chances for recovery still 50-50.  very sad.

The odds could be worse!  Let's hope and pray for the best!  He seems like a tough horse!  Hopefully he will come through it all and have some fine colts!

Yes, they are worried about infections and him kicking his cast off!  But his chances are good if he avoids both!

Continued......

``I know these people, and they love this horse,'' said Dan Rosenberg, president of Three Chimneys in Midway, Ky., where Smarty Jones stands for a stud fee of $100,000. ``Yes, this is a business. But at the same time if you don't care about them, then you can't do this.''

Rosenberg also said it was premature to put a price tag on Barbaro's value as a stallion.

The Jacksons have been in racing for 30 years, and Barbaro is by far the best horse they've owned.

``When one becomes a racehorse owner, one of the things is to not fall in love with the animal because it is so painful when something like this happens,'' Gretchen Jackson said. ``Yes, we've experienced this before ... it's part of life.''

Roy Jackson said Barbaro was insured, and the premiums grew after the colt won the Florida Derby and the Kentucky Derby. The owners also have a policy that protects them in case Barbaro is unable to stand at stud.

The Jacksons could have made the decision not to go through the expense of trying to save Barbaro, and likely would have collected on their policy.

``If they went to the insurance company and said they made a decision to destroy the horse, there would be no questions,'' Rosenberg said. ``But they didn't.''

barbaro needs our prayers again:

Doctor Says 'Tough Days Ahead' for Barbaro
Kentucky Derby Winner Suffers Serious Setback

KENNETT SQUARE, Pennsylvania (July 10) - Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro was facing major problems for the first time since surgery to repair the right hind leg he shattered in the Preakness seven weeks ago, with Dr. Dean Richardson saying ''we're in tough times right now.''

Barbaro had the cast on the leg replaced for a sixth time Monday - the fourth time in a week. The latest development followed many hours of surgery Saturday night when doctors replaced the metal plate and many screws and also treated an infection.

''I think we're in for tough times right now. I think we're going to have some tough days ahead,'' Richardson said at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center. ''I'm being realistic about it. When a horse has a setback like this, it's a problem.''

Richardson, the chief surgeon at the New Bolton Center, looked haggard during the briefing, and said it took more than 15 hours from the start of Saturday's surgery before Barbaro had fully recovered from anesthesia.

He said Barbaro was back in his stall in the intensive care unit, where he's been since the catastrophic injury occurred just a few hundred yards after the start of the Preakness.

''Right now, he's happier,'' Richardson said. ''He's got a normal heart rate, normal temperature, he's eating like crazy. He's very hungry. He's making lots of manure. He looks actually pretty happy today. Now we have to see how he responds to what's going on.''

The long cast applied Saturday night was replaced by a shorter cast Monday, and was done with Barbaro in a sling and under mild sedation,'' Richardson said.

''The long cast was used as extra support during the anesthetic recovery phase,'' Richardson said. ''It is much easier for him to move around his stall and get up and down with a short cast. We also found and treated an abscess in his left hind foot that was bothering him.''

Barbaro is receiving pain medication, antibiotics and other supportive care, Richardson added.
