It was so great to see Barbaro emerging out of the gates. But soon the mood changed as something appeared to happen to the great horse. It was complete silence. Fans as well as owners and trainers did not know what to say. The Derby winner's fate was sealed. He was not to participate in the Preakness. All the bets were off. A horse that was the leader of the pack became the follower. Eventually, an ambulance showed up to shield the horse from the public. It was not enough. Everyone thought Barbaro was going to be put down. The owners thought otherwise. Despite huge insurance premiums, they chose to send it to surgery. After a five-hour surgery, the horse came out fine. Veterinarians are saying that his survival case is a 50-50 draw.
"His survival, however, is still 50-50. Despite the huge first step on the road to recovery, Dr. Dean Richardson said the Kentucky Derby winner's fate still came down to "a coin toss. Right now he's very happy," Richardson said after the surgery at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center for Large Animals. "He's eating, he's doing very good. But I've been doing this too long to know that day one is not the end of things."
Soon a tribute to Barbaro started forming. Get well wishes started pouring in on the website. 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.
