This is what's going on outside my apartment right now.
Gallop away and RIP, Barbaro...
"Even in a short seven-race career, Barbaro’s statistics are impressive, with six-victories and earnings of more than $1.5 million. But they do not tell the whole story of the colt, who dazzled the racing world when healthy and then garnered its compassion in his fight to recover from injury and what was ultimately an insurmountable disease."
