Barbaro’s race for the Triple Crown ended almost as soon as the Preakness began on Saturday. The Kentucky Derby winner fractured his leg in two places and was taken to an equine hospital about an hour from the track for emergency surgery.

As we’ve mentioned in other posts in the blog, it’s never easy to see something like this. It’s not easy shooting it either. Emotions are high, adrenaline is pumping, and it’s chaotic. Fans were crying and screaming, fearing that the horse would be put down right there on the track. I think most everyone there forgot there was even a race still running.
